Find Your Celebrity Look-Alike with MyHeritage

When you think advanced face recognition technology, you don't usually associate it with an online genealogy site. But MyHeritage is taking advantage of face recognition in a unique way to simplify the labeling of photos that you upload into online photo albums. The idea is to automatically tag photos with the names of your relatives.

Another use they're putting this technology to is a celebrity look-alike finder. Like AOL's recently launched Find My Celebrity Look-Alike site, MyHeritage lets you upload a photo or specify the URL of a photo that you want to match to a celebrity. Helpfully, the site also supports Bebo and Photobucket galleries.

There are 4000 celebrities in the database from the last 200 years so don't be surprised to see yourself matched to some unlikely celebrities, as you can see below.

One downside is that you need to register to use the service.
