As a user, I want to tag familiar human faces so that I can find all photos of these persons.

PhotoPrism must be able to detect and recognize faces. There are existing libraries for this, so we should try those first. See Face Recognition in our Wiki.

Here is a complete howto:

Acceptance Criteria:

  • You SHOULD use go-face (unless you find a better library)
  • A unit test demonstrating face recognition with real images and faces MUST be delivered
  • A user interface MAY be developed and gives extra karma
  • You MUST update our Docker images in /docker as needed (go-face requires dlib as external dependency); let us know when we shall push new images to Docker Hub
  • Documentation MUST be updated so that other developers know everything to continue working on this task

Here are some more libraries to consider:

The latter is using Dlib state-of-the-art face recognition built with deep learning. The model has an accuracy of 99.38% on the Labeled Faces in the Wild benchmark

I'd prefer a library implemented in Go to improve performance and reduce complexity.

As a proof of concept you can create a small interface to an external tool (eg. using its CLI) and then later it's possible to replace it with a native Go lib. I think it would speed up the early development, this Python lib looks pretty much mature.
