Take a photo of your girlfriend or whoever, load it into a software that searches internet porn sites for an image match. It uses a face recognition algorithm

Know up front if the person that you are dating or doing business with has had a career in porn. Check to see if your secret sex tape was released somewhere. Find out who your daughter is really spending her time with......

i don't see how this could not have been done already

       [-] and what if, say, there may be a porn actor which resembles the person ?

       To what end ?

       false positives always come back with face rec software, it would be for you the human to decide if its accurate or not   

       an obvious match is an obvious match if you can handle the truth you might decide to use the site or not.   

       think of the naive or innocent people a service app like this could protect, the broken hearts it could save.

       Why not just search manually?

       I think putting "facial" and "porno" together is going to get you the wrong kind of customers.

       True, and yet somehow strangely not ....

       I have no problem changing the name, honestly the name was an afterthought just seemed to fit in the moment.

       If she is someone worth having in your life, why wouldn't you just ask her? A person of honor is a person of honor, clothed or unclothed, I think.

       i agree BlissMiss but wouldn't you just want to know knowledge is power
vfrackis, Jan 17 2010

       //knowledge is power// and sooo altruistic, still [-]... why not have genital comparison ?
FlyingToaster, Jan 17 2010

       I thought the idea would be some way to associate facial expression with the character's motivation.

       could this same technology also be used to trawl facebook and other sites looking for pictures of loved ones doing unsavory acts? (and not tagging themselves)   

       bonus points for the fact that the creepy members of society could use this to find porn stars that look like their significant others   

       "sorry hun, you would never do that in real life, but I found someone who would"

       What about the malicious ex with a copy of photoshop?
prufrax, Jan 22 2010

       ...a lot of porn films don't even show faces...maybe you should be looking at other parts.
xandram, Jan 22 2010

       Too many people share similar faces [-]
