Face Detection API coming to Apple iOS 5

Polar Rose based Face detection to show up in iOS 5 as developer API.

A year ago Apple bought a small swedish startup called Polar Rose. The company was developing a Face Recognition software that excels in algorithm benchmarks for uncontrolled Web-images and consumer photos. Now 9to5Mac spotted API calls in the iOS 5 beta releases that imply that Apple will expose face detection capabilities to developers. These powerful features should trigger a slew of new cool iOS apps.

It looks like iOS 5 has a lot more to offer than Apple has officially announced earlier this year. The Siri based Apple Assistant and Nuance based dictation features are also seen to be released on iOS 5 either at launch or later.
