Using the same tools that they have to identify terrorists walking through airports you should be able to compare the features of your face with many possible faces. This would allow a person trying to figure out which famous people they look like to rapidly get a percentage match against an entire database of pictures of famous people. It also would allow people to find their lost doppleganger - a person who looks just like them but they have never met.

       There's some software like this posited in William Gibson's novel 'Virtual Light'. There it's called 'Separated at Birth' and used by the police and the like.

       Nah, it's sad enough to know that one person looks like this.
