Facial Recognition by FaceBook and iPhone

One of my favorite things is when my iPhone or Facebook closes in around a face in one of my paintings.   It’s fun to fool the computer to recognize a person that doesn’t actually exist.  That aside, it must be some really impressive software to have a computer recognize a face.  We have come a long way from ones and zeros.  Anyway, I find it really nifty when a face in a painting is recognized by a computer.   If the system started suggesting names that were a close match, that would be really “out there”.
