Use of Facial Recognition Software to ID People in Civil War Pictures

Recommended Posts

My daughter brought the article below to my attention and I thought it was worth sharing. It details how a Civil War enthusiast built a website that applies facial recognition technology to Civil War portraits in an attempt to identfy the people in them. I'm sure it won't be long until it is applied to photographs from other wars as well.

This is great! I hope they do expand it soon. What a potential tool. The value of old photos will go up if someone can apply names to them. Thanks for posting this.
