Google Face Detection Software

Face detection is becoming more common in still photographs but the technology has yet failed to support video footage. Google is looking to break into this brand of technology and has filed a patent application. The Google technology will use a series of video frames to generate clusters of facial representations which are associated with any person.

By understanding what someone looks like from any given angle, Google could then associate a name to whenever that person is recognised in a video clip. The technology is sophisticated enough to handle differences in lighting, shadows and faces at any conceivable angle.

The technology will offer an added option to YouTube, offering the ability to tag whoever appears in a single video. No more claiming the video where you ran naked through a crowd of people wasn't you - the technology will prove otherwise and tag you. Consider it a blessing or a curse, but the technology looks sure to be integrated into Google's products in the near future.

Not sure this is a 'new invention'. This has been around for a while, wirewax have been doing something similar for some time now, It'll be good to know how google will use it, just linking people to their google+ account?? There must be some advertising involved somewhere :/
