I’m surprised that more fuss is not been made over the privacy implications of the new Picasa3 face recognition software. It’s certainly superior to the Apple iPhoto offering. The most worrying aspect is that it allows you, well almost insists, that you link the photos to the persons email address. I wonder if Google are then taking the photo data and storing on there own servers?.
The image above is a collage of the 585 face images of me it has found on my main computer. Interestingly some are from group shots were it has picked me out of a large group!
