Xbox 360 Has No Comparison

There is nothing like being raw and blunt. What could be more insulting to the Xbox owners than to have it compared in any way to other items? Nothing.

While you and I may find it easy to recognize faces amongst the many in public or the locations we come across on the Web, but computers have a tough time. There has been some work done to improve facial recognition, Google has recently shown interest in teaching computers to recognize landmarks.

The system matched the photo with more than 40 million images stored at Picasa and Panoramio along with those found on Google Image Search. The system is pretty intelligent, given that it recognizes more than 50,000 landmarks with 80% accuracy, but to put it out to test it has to do even better primarily because the number of locations available, a 20% shortcoming is a lot more than one would want.
