I can imagine what it would look like if this were a .io startup instead of a research project. The front page would be 20 times taller with endless scrolling, yet consist mostly of beautifully laid out white space filled with some trendy shade of brown. In that vast emptiness there would be floating decapitated heads that actively try to escape the mouse cursor. When I finally manage to hover over one of the heads, it would reveal a nondescript slogan, for example "Recognize. Integrate. Socially." There would be a single cryptic two-line code example given in CoffeeScript, and nowhere on the site would it be apparent whether this product is commercial and how much it costs.
Seriously, my paranoid level has never been so high.

Google Glass certainly has the same issue, but to an even higher degree, since we know about the collaboration of Google with the NSA.
EDIT: thanks for the correction, missed that one.
OpenCV includes implementations of several seminal face recognition algorithms (PCA, LDA, & LBP). The OpenBR algorithm is more modern/sophisticated in its combination of several well studied approaches. While I haven't explicitly compared OpenCV against OpenBR, the OpenCV algorithms can and have been expressed within the OpenBR and are known to be less accurate. Having said that, accuracy & algorithm choice are highly dependent on image quality. Our technical paper  provides more details.
"Internally the code base uses the CMake build system and requires Qt and OpenCV."
Anyone read enough to know when that occurs?
 irc.freenode.net #openbr
I'd like to use this for authentication purposes but if I'm interpreting it right their performance is close to existing solutions, but not close enough for commercial use.
I've done this a couple of times with my brother's phone. All I had to do as load his profile picture on my phone and show it to his camera.
