Propellerhead News

Here’s a chance to get in on the ground floor of what could be an exciting new Internet technology, or it could be a damp squib, either way you’ll be able to say you were there…  It’s called Polar Rose and it is a browser plug-in from a Swedish research group led by Jan Erik Solem at Malmo University. The idea is you will be able to search quickly through images on your PC, and on the web, finding people based on facial characteristics and a 3D model generated from data within a photograph. Could be interesting, the technology is currently in a closed Alpha test but it will be opened up for Beta testing soon and if you want to sign up then pop along to the Polar Rose website
