    This is kinda fun to play with, but has anyone noticed that the results seem very dependent on the angle of your face in the picture you upload? It seems like the program necessarily keys in on your orientation with respect to the lens, and then matches it with someone facing the camera at a similar angle. Anyone else made that observation?

    Peter Ustinov.

    There is now way I look anything like Peter Ustinov. One was kinda close. I do kinda look like John Peel.

    There are a lot of quirks in the software. Interestingly enough. Even if the software was brilliant and used very advanced and sci-fi type of facial recognition. It might still be likely to say I'm 70% keira knightely, solely because, it would pick up on individual features her and I may share, but forgo the big picture.

    What I mean by that is, I could have a nose just like hers, eyebrows just like hers, lips just like hers, jawline just like hers, but my face would still be markedly different and no person would ever confuse me for her, or even necessarily be able to see a resemblance.

    Regardless, it's still fun software to toy around with. I think that if you submit a dozen pictures and get the same person with similar percentages each time. Perhaps then you can say that you actually have some similarities to that person in question. One-offs can be incredibly sporadic.

    And ya, then some company gets to steal your identity. It's good stuff all around really.
