The developers of this unusual FindFace application, in fact, managed to create an analogue of Shazam for photos: to find a person from a photo in VK, just upload his photo and start a search. So far, it is carried out only on the VKontakte social network, but the developers promise to soon adapt the technology for other social networks.
The service is based on an algorithm based on neural network technology developed by N-Tech.Lab. According to the tests conducted, this algorithm takes less than a second to search for a photo in a database of 300 million files!
In general, fewer words and more action. So let's try how Find Face – search by photo – works in practice.
When launched, the application will request access to your VKontakte account to get started. Then the main window will appear, in the middle of which there will be a single button – 'Find new friends'.

Pressing it launches the camera application, and you can either take a photo of a person, for example, in a magazine, or even at a table opposite, or allow access to the film and upload a photo from there, and then start searching for a person by photo in VK.
First of all, I, of course, tried to find myself a loved one. Then find the pages in VK from photos of girls similar to Angelina Jolie. And you know, despite the fact that the search displays users who simply use the star's photo as an avatar, I really succeeded!
You can add those you like to 'Likes' by clicking on the heart icon next to your username. You can view photos in their albums and open their VKontakte profile to start chatting. For example, if you like a certain type of girls or guys, the application will show you user profiles that are as similar to them as possible.
True, it is worth noting that in Find Face, only 30 free searches are available to the user to find a VK page by photo, and if you want to remove the restriction, you will have to pay for a subscription, the monthly cost of which is from 149 rubles. up to 459 p. I must say that this is clearly not cheap.
And if you take into account that in the process of using I also encountered a considerable number of glitches, for example, images in the 'Camera Roll' were displayed as white squares, and the application crashed periodically, then it is hardly possible to recommend paying for the paid Find Face tariff.
It's worth a try though, because it's free. And, perhaps, unlike me, you will like it better.
