A Comment on Facebook’s Face Recognition Software

Facebook wants me to tag my friends in this picture:


Sure, Facebook – let me introduce you to my good friend Philosophy, along with two putto/genii, and two armrests that aren’t even human figures in this image.

Perhaps you need Art Recognition Software, because as anyone who knows Renaissance art knows, this is the rondel of Philosophy from the ceiling above Raphael’s School of Athens (which just so happens to be my favorite Renaissance painting). Also, you’d also stop removing classic works of art for violating your posting policy.

Still, thanks for giving me some laughs this evening.
