    Default large-scale VI?

    If someone could gather a lot of standardised (like in european passports nowadays) pictures for VI purposes, there could be made a huge database of VI examples. Given that most of them has to be actually typed correctly, these photos can be used by a software to match your picture which you contributed to find your own VI typing. And if it's somehow correct, the software could add your picture to the others to be even more precise at the end. It's not that other people should see your photo, it's just saved for the internal matching process.

    The software itself is no problem, there are already websites which use this kind of technology. I just don't know if VI is reliable enough for such a typing service. What's your opinion?

    You too, wanted to work for Interpol ? I think I would be willing to care for the entire database of pictures.

    Filatova has a collection such as this, but the majority of the photos are hidden within Russian literature. If we can find a website that hosts them it would bring great success.

    Yes, that's also what I thought. And people wouldn't have to check them all one by one if a computer could to that. Fast and efficient.

    Now implement an automatic matching software and you could run some seriously objective VI.
