Facial Recognition

iPhoto has "Facial Recognition", or it is supposed to. I have been going through my photos telling it who people are. I have more pictures of The Beast than anyone else and it still can't recognize her. It can't recognize faces that are tilted too much. And it still marks random patterns as possible faces. This technology is still not as good as the human mind at identifying faces. We are still a long way from computers scanning faces in crowds and matching them to wanted criminals.

Comments

I've been mostly satisfied with the facial recognition on Picasa. When it scanned my photos it identified groups of faces it thought were the same and allowed me to identify the cluster. It was even able to identify profiles as well.
