Facial recognition and image grouping

Project Description:

· Design a application that contains an algorithm that is able to detect and recognize  faces. This program would take a photo scan it and put it in a database in order to group like images together.

· We plan on expanded on previous work done on the subject while implementing our own ideas.

· We would also like to take a image in the database and use it to search the web and find any instance of that person or object on the web
