Look-alikes

MyHeritage has a mildly amusing feature that allows you to upload a picture and, through some magical process of facial recognition, spits back a collage of various “famous” people you look like. Seems to be pretty good, based on a gut-check of running my own photo.

I wast interested to see if the software would recognize a cat’s face, so I uploaded a recent picture of our cat. The software told me there was “no face in the picture,” and prompted me to show it the face to analyze, which I did. Still, there were no matches. So at least the software can recognize human faces.
