Google Searching For Buddha?


[Media Source*]

It appears as if the search giant Google will be assisting Buddha Films in a hunt to find the human face that best reflects the face of Buddha.

(The Buddhist Channel) In an exclusive interview with Business Standard, the chairman of Buddha Films, BK Modi, who is now based in Beverly Hills, said preliminary discussion were on with Google for the global talent hunt.

He said a lot of people across the globe had shown interest in playing the role of the Buddha, but not one matched the image of the Buddha.


Buddha Films was approached by a leading Japanese actor who they apparently turned down because they did not "match up." Although Google has indexed a vast (yet unknown) portion of the web, they do not yet possess the technology to index general faces.

But if Google can assemble the images for Buddha Films, their is one corporation who can sift the faces in order to find the face of Buddha.

(Riya) We are a group of determined face recognition and text recognition researchers and engineers who believe it is time for a new type of photo search that uses technology to look inside and automatically tag photos. We hope this will revolutionize how people "see" the world. (Source*)


Riya may be of interest to Buddha films as their technology would enable the Hollywood company sift through the millions of images, reducing the time and effort needed in the search. There is no news whether or not Riya has been contacted by Buddha Films, but if not it probably would be in Riya's interest to contact them.
