Recognizes human faces in photos|
According to David Cao, ArcSoft's Director of Mobile Solutions, the latest FunnyFace application can automatically locate faces and recognize human facial features such as eyes, nose, mouth, chin, and jaw within a half second - improved by 6 times over the previous version - on a regular 100MHz ARM9 mobile phone. The facial feature data are used to create a geometric model to morph the facial photo into various expressions. The transformed facial image can then be seamlessly merged back into the original picture without any hints of being doctored.
