Face.com, a market-leading facial recognition software start-up, has released an iPhone camera app to demonstrate its real-time facial recognition technology, called Klik.
By syncing with social networking site Facebook, Klik learns who your friends are, instantly identifying them on the smartphone screen before you to take a photo. Tagged pictures are then uploaded to Facebook with the option of adding vintage-style filters.
If the app can’t recognise a face, users can ‘teach’ the app who the person is to improve future results. The more photos taken with Klik, the more accurate it becomes.
