Bigblue’s celebrity look-alikes

My Celebrity Look-likes

At My Heritage you can upload a photograph of yourself and let their facial recognition software compare you to 4,000 celebrities. I got this from Chicken Yoghurt, who comments:

If the ID card facial recognition software works like this we’re in for some hilarity at the airports in a year or two.

I generally agree, although 4,000 is not a very large database for a subject such as this, plus the percentage matches are quite low (nobody over 66% in my case).  It would be interesting to load a photo of someone like Andre Aggasi and see how well they map it to their own image of him.
