Face Recognition Website

I found this really interesting website today, myheritage.com. Essentially, you upload a picture, and the site uses face recognition algorithms that match you up to celebrities that the program determines that you closely match based on your facial features. Now the site was originally designed for genealogy purposes, but has been updated to match people up to celebrities.

Because we had nothing better to do today at work (unless you consider jacking goofing off to be busy, in which case we were completely overloaded as usual), we played around with it and got some pretty funny results:

My matches:
Tom Cruise – 64%
Denise Richards – 58%
Eminem – 51%
River Phoenix – 48%

Josh’s matches:
Matt Dillon – 57%
Russell Crow – 53%
Quentin Tarantino – 51%
Tom Berenger – 49%

Carla’s matches:
Elizabeth Taylor – 72%
Salma Hayek – 72%
Beyonce Knowles – 71%
Heather Locklear – 70%
Lindsay Lohan – 70%

Sean’s matches:
Sean William Scott – 67%
Tommy Lee Jones – 65%
Joshua Jackson – 60%
Gwyneth Paltrow – 58%
Tom Green – 57%
