Facial recognition software spots family resemblance

FACIAL recognition software that's as good as people at spotting family resemblances could help to reunite lost family members - or help the likes of Facebook work out which of your friends are blood relatives. To do this, the team used a database of public figures and their parents or children - such as French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his son Jean - and fed the program 320 pairs each of parent-child matches and mismatches. The software then compared the difference between a test pair of photos with pairs of photos in its database. In tests using 160 pairs - 80 parent-child matches and 80 mismatches - the system had a success rate of 68 per cent.
