Face.com – Face Recognition Tech. from Israel
Posted April 4, 2009on:
Face.com lately has been in the news,is a start up that is focussing on a face recognition technology and they think its the best out there.
I have an alpha invite to their fbook app and will be reviewing them soon. So tune in again
They recently announced their Facebook app called Photo Finder to test their technology. However their plan seems to build face.com into a much bigger service and instead of being just a fbook app.
If they can build a scalable backend to support a healthy traffic, they should be in for sometime to come. They are slowly uncovering sheets from their technology and starting to talk more about face.
Their First post on their official blog was on March 24th
They also recently won best show award at Techonomoy. Here’s an excerpt from a post on their blog
“Today we got our first chance to speak in public about face.com. It was at Techonomy, a great event that “delves into the business and economy behind the Web 2.0 technological revolution”. The 6 selected companies were all fresh, innovative, and very cool. Each company had its 7 minutes to speak followed by a round of questions and comments from the on-stage panelists. All the speakers put on a great show, and the tweets in the background kept the crowd engaged. Sarah Lacy wrapped up the event, giving a chance for the crowd to vote for their favorite company. We were very honored to be selected as the best in show by the crowd, for us it was great to get this recognition – thanks to all of those who voted!
For the first time we’ve also demo’d face.com’s face recognition engine in action, processing a staggering 50 photos/sec on my laptop. Check it out in this flixwagon video: ”
