I have been using Google's Picasa for photo recognition.

Subject: [APG Public List] photo recognition
I see Facebook has added a photo recognition application that supposedly
will find 'untagged' photos of individuals on facebook by using a known
photograph.  I know this raises all kinds of privacy (and other) issues, but
that's not what interests me here.
As photo recognition software begins to reach the public domain (maybe there
are versions available besides the above), would it not be a useful tool to
compare and find individuals in old photographs (where you already have at
least one identified photo of a person)?   Would be great to have access to
something like that.  I have dozens of old photos where there is nothing
written as to identities, and in some I think I can identify particular
people, but having this software at least as a rough guide would be helpful.
Some of these old photographs have very high quality images.
Anyone with comments or knowledge of the state of things in this area?
