Face recognition comes to Google – behold, the ugly mug ball


According to Google Blogoscoped [via Ars Technica], Google searches can now be filtered by face. So if you want to search for a set of faces only in the images section, just add ‘&imgtype=face’ (without the quotes) to the search string in the address bar and select the images tab, and you’ll see a bunch of faces lookin’ back atcha. It’s pretty freaky if you do a search on your name I can tell you!

Try it –

  • Exalead launched this feature few weeks ago already, without requesting to add anything in the search string, don’t hesitate to test it on, we’d be happy to get your feedback on our blog.
