Polar Rose - Find Someone.... - Face Recognition Search Engine - 0 views

    Polar Rose grew out of computer vision research - the analysis of digital images and video - at the Universities of Lund and Malmö in southern Sweden. We are currently a team of twenty-two, including computer science graduates, mathematics and physics Ph.Ds, a user interface designer, and a technology-fascinated economist on off-roads. We believe that we have superior technology which will give meaning to digital photos and allow these to be indexable just like text documents on the web are today. We work on friendly, fun, useful and transparent applications, that use computer vision technology to sort and add context to the photo web.
