A couple of years ago was very popular service FindFace, owned by NtechLab, which allows you to find the person in the social network "VKontakte" one only pictures. It was enough to take a picture, after which the system finds itself in user page.

February 8 was launched service SearchFace, which by its functionality repeats FindFace. After a user downloads the system produces images of the search result pages "VKontakte", which, in its opinion, meet the request. One of the first findings discovered readers "Habra", which found that the domain was registered (just after closing FindFace) last fall.

The algorithm works very accurately and does not show users with similar features: it allows to reduce the issue and make it relevant. It is noteworthy that the service is even closed profiles "VKontakte".

Previously, a system created by Russian engineers, recognized as the best in their field of US intelligence.
