A new photo service finds VKontakte people (2 photos)


FindFace service owned by NtechLab wasvery popular. He allowed to find the person "VKontakte" in his photo. Did the system have to provide only a snapshot? and she herself found the page of the corresponding user.

Last year the service was closed. The fact is that NtechLab began to work on projects of national importance, based on facial recognition technology. The service had no alternative until SearchFace, functionally repeating FindFace, was launched on February 8. According to the downloaded user snapshot, the service returns a search result with VKontakte pages that correspond, in his opinion, to the request. It is curious that the domain was registered in the fall, almost immediately after the FindFace resource closed to the general public.


The novelty has already been tested by experts. SearchFace works well, giving quite a reliable result. The algorithm is very accurate, it does not give users with similar facial features. So issuance is reduced and becomes more relevant. The service can even find closed VKontakte accounts.

The contacts of its creators are hidden, so the degree of its relationship to FindFace is unknown. SearchFace is not very similar to the working version. It was probably created for internal use.
