Do you understand.
The Face.com platform uses our own proprietary technology to detect and recognize people's faces in photos. We have geared our technology towards high accuracy in everyday photos, and are able to scale it to billions of photos a month. The various Face.com services mash-up existing platforms such as Facebook in order to provide tagging, and as such requires your specific Login credentials in order to process photos within your friends social network. As a cloud technology, developers sign up for free and start incorporating the Face.com capabilities without installing any software, focusing only on building a great user-experience.
While we cannot reveal all our secrets behind our great technology, we regularly contribute work to academic research. If you're interested in learning more about the underlying algorithms head over to the Labeled Faces in the Wild, a great resource for most recent approaches to face recognition and where we publish our papers.
With all the turmoil in the Old Country, this is one of the things that will soon be showing up here in the New Land.
I doubt anyone will heed the warnings of the Ghost of Christmas Future.....
Make sure you have a good zero.
SANT CLIMENT DE LLOBREGAT, Spain
Drop those cherries, you're under arrest. Crops and cops are converging along Spain's journey through economic crisis: People enduring hardship are stealing the earth's bounty from farmers to help get by from day to day.
And things have happened in the Spanish countryside that make it look like the Wild West, or in some cases, Wall Street.
_ A rancher in central Spain went out one morning to view his 200-head herd of cattle and found two prized calves which had just been released into the pack shot in the head at point-blank range, and perfectly slaughtered. They were to have been prized breeders. But only the bony carcasses, with heads attached, remained in the muddy field. "Those animals were phenomenal. They were spectacular. Really fat, very well treated, and after five or six days in the field, they killed them," said the rancher, Eulogio Morales.
