Face recognition is a technology that enables users to be identified by analyzing their face and giving them access to applications, services or automated systems. The process is to check every part of your face with absolute accuracy. If they match the information stored in the database, access is allowed. For example, many cell phones already use this technology to allow the user to access the device.
A reverse image search engine can use facial recognition to determine if a photo or video is used on a website
On the other hand, there are some search engines that have this technology and that can also be used to review photos, videos or documents and identify a person. They are used, for example, to determine whether your photo is being used by third parties on other digital platforms without your consent, or to determine whether the opinions published on a particular website are genuine (sometimes there are companies that use image databases and falsify user reviews in order to making them more positive).
With that in mind, here are some facial recognition search engines that you can use:
-Google Pictures: You can practice reverse photo search in Google. All you have to do is hit the Images tab and upload a photo you want to find the information for. Press Enter and enter the following text at the end of the generated URL: “& imgtype = face”. This allows you to get more efficient results for faces associated with this image.
-Berify: Website where you can use your search engine to find reverse technology images. This is a great way to tell if your photo or video has been used on another website without your consent. It has a database of more than 800 million images.
-Pimeyes: is a website for identifying faces using facial recognition. It has a search system on more than 10 million pages on the Internet. All you have to do is upload a photo of someone’s face and it will show the list of places where it will be used.
-Betaface: works the same as the rest. The system searches the web for the face of the photo uploaded to the server and shows where it is being used. It has detection systems for up to 22 basic points of view on a face and up to 101 professional points of view if it has been retouched. Also classify the results by age, gender, ethnicity, smile … to compare faces.
-Pictriev: is a face finder that can only be used for celebrity photos. It has three indicators of male, female, and age-related facial features. This way, when you upload a photo, the system not only gives you percentage details of the type of face to be searched, it also shows if it is similar to other celebrities and gives a percentage of how similar they are.
-Yandex: is a Russian search engine with which you can also use “Sibir” to find faces from a picture. This method breaks down images uploaded by the user into a series of numeric characters. They are then compared to those stored in the database to obtain accurate or similar results.
-Tineye: is a search engine that performs facial recognition based on a photo of the face. As a differential function, tracking images can identify how often the face is used on other digital platforms.
