Top Unique Search Engines

in Society

Search engines are becoming ever smarter in managing the massive amounts of data they are facing. In fact, few tools have face search and facial recognition. Here are the search engines that may give you a thrill. Let’s see what they reveal about our life.

 

PicTriev – Face Recognition Search Engine


Pictriev is a search engine to find similar faces on the web using face recognition. The results can vary on the resolution or quality of photo. In order to get a reliable answer, users should enter a photo that contains a frontal face with the gap between the eyes more than 80 pixels wide. What you do is upload a portrait shot or any face photo in .jpg or .jpeg format with a size no larger than 200KB. Then the search engine will return matching images found online. You can also run a demo with a selection of famous photos.

Viewdle – Face Recognition Video Search Engine


Viewdle is a facial recognition video search engine, powered by Reuters Labs. It analyzes videos frame by frame, searching for faces. Moreover, it adds contextual information to the face recognition data by converting speech to text. All of that is combined in an index, which allows searching for the right person, in the right clip, at the right moment. In other words, it helps you find information and people in videos.

At this point, Viewdle can only find famous faces. Just type in a name at the bottom left and you’ll be forwarded to the search page. Here you can also enter a keyword to narrow down the results. Advanced search allows you to refine the search results by picking a video channel and time frame for the video. Obviously, this type of indexing is highly useful for TV stations, for example to browse their archives for relevant material.
