After one too many close encounters of the awkward kind, we decided that enough was enough. Gone would be the days of "Hey... uh, you!" and asking acquaintances to introduce themselves to each other. Technology was destined to bring about a golden age of not forgetting people's names, and we would be its heralds.

What it does

Take a picture, get a name. It's that easy.

How I built it

We used mathematica's classifiers (with several modifications) to recognize faces, and deployed this to wolframcloud.

Challenges I ran into

Android doesn't like to send files to wolframcloud. Also, mathematica classifiers are difficult to modify.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We can match photos of people to their facebook profile pictures.

What's next

Improving the classifiers and getting greater quantity and quality of training data.
