Is anyone know whether we can integrate the Face Recognition Software into LinuxMCE?

There would be loads of uses for face recognition if it were reliable enough. Walk into a room... the MD recognises its you and sets the lighting and other settings to your liking, Follow-me using face recognition would be cool... just walk from rrom to room and the system would instantly recognise you and your media/lighting etc would magically follow you. Security applications are many.... recognise who is at the door. Log unrecognised faces and then indentify them as suspicious... have the system alert you if that person re-appears etc etc...

Now the downside is that I have yet to see anything approaching this capability even at airpport security checks... its just not that reliable and is fooled by smal variations in lighting, facial hair and simply make-up.

But it would be great if somewhere out there we could find something that delivered for real :-)
