This genealogy website (I guess that’s what they do) offers a beta of their face recognition functionality where you can chose to find matches in their celebrity database. I tried it with a couple of pictures of myself and got some weird combinations. First pic gave me:

Angelina Jolie

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Wyatt Earp

Kurt Cobain

J.K. Rowling

While the second came up with:

Camille Saint-Saens

Albert Camus

André Malraux

Bob Dylan

It’s funny to have 3 french guys for the second one since it was a variation of this picture taken in Paris. I’m happy with the Wyatt Earp and Kurt Cobain in the first one but how much can something that matches Angelina Jolie with J.K. Rowling be trusted?? Fun though.
