Facial recognition #22
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: https://hackernoon.com/face-recognition-with-go-676a555b8a7e
As a proof of concept you can create a small interface to an external tool (eg. https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition 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.
