Google’s Picasa Launching Face Recognition Software

At noon in Mountain View, Google will announce the launch of face recognition software in their latest version of Picasa, according to Cnet.com.

The software will help people tag names to their photographs – handy for that odd face in a group shot you are not sure of. Now I wonder how long it will be before one of the crime shows makes use of it in the field when they do not have access to their lab!

Hey it may not have access to police records yet… but knowing Google a collaboration no doubt will eventually come. Versions for small police departments would make sense and further ingrain the brand.
