This happens when you use a face detection algorithm in the clouds

This happens when you use a face detection algorithm in the clouds

At some point in life many of us have fixed their gaze upon the clouds or somewhere mosaic floor in search of a face or form known. Others have even gone beyond saying they found “the face of God” in some formation of cumulonimbus.

The practice of looking faces has been taken to the next level by the South Korean study Shinseungback Kimyonghun , who has developed software that detects faces in the clouds. According to Kim Yong Hun, Study, all born with an experiment that sought to capture images of people walking down the street by a webcam and special software.

The experiment worked, except that the algorithm also detected as faces some images of buildings or streets. This led Kim to experiment with the clouds to point the camera at the sky to see their behavior. The result was Cloud Face , a collection of 75 photographs printed and mounted as collage, as well as animated GIFs which shows the formation of the face.

Cloud Face is similar to another project called Google Faces , only unlike clouds, Google Faces looking faces in the satellite images of Google Maps coordinates and reviewing different zoom levels.
