What is Face Searching?

What is Face Searching?

Find similar-looking faces to a new face, from a given collection of faces. Face++'s fast and accurate search returns a collection of similar faces, along with confidence score and thresholds to evaluate the similarity.

With Face Searching, you can create an index of faces in your photo library. It is also applied to quickly determine the identities of people in large crowds , given a photo ID database.



Try Face Searching now by uploading local images, or providing image URLs. To the probe face at left, Face++ will find 5 most similar faces from the collection. To manage your own collection, please sign in to your account.
This demo is built with Search API and FaceSet APIs. If you have any specific technical requirements, check the index below or contact us.
