I attended Robobusiness (http://www.robobusiness2006.com/) back in June this summer and met the guys from Pittsburgh Pattern Recognition. The have software which can recognize faces from any image. They had the facial recognition software on display in their booth and it was pretty impressive. They had a camera pointed at the passing crowd and green boxes would appear around each person's face in real time. It was impressively accurate.

Their website even has a face detection in photographs demo (http://demo.pittpatt.com/) where you can upload your own photo to see their software in action. Very Cool.

I spoke with the team for a bit and they said that they were interested in creating a commercial version of the technology. Of course I immediately started thinking about the robotic benefits of their technology as a modular plug in which developers could use.

PittPatt is a company worth keeping an eye on if you are interested in facial recognition software. Here is their website: Pittsburgh Pattern Recognition (http://www.pittpatt.com/).

It recognized some punk legends:

As an added bonus, it saw a face in Jeff Nelson's knee and one in the lawn mower.

Unfortunately, it didn't find anything in the picture of the Simpsons that I tried.

I'm impressed. It didn't miss any complete faces and it caught a few partial ones, too.http://imagesocket.com/view/3PDJX0CUA49387_result1a3.jpg
