Archives Facial Recognition Project – first thoughts

Currently, Sahree and I are working with Nat Wilson in the archives department to review existing facial recognition software tools. The end goal of this project is to be able to use a tool to recognize and label pictures of alumni with much greater speed and accuracy than we currently have by doing the process manually.To that end, the three of us are reviewing some articles this week dealing with exisiting tools. In particular, Nat gave us a list of 50 or so facial recognition tools (the list was current as of late 2013), and I highlighted five or so that I thought would be particularly useful. I tried to focus on tools that were free, independent of outside software (so we don’t have to send private information to external networks), and simple to use products designed to work on their own (as opposed to being part of a code library for use in developing larger applications).
