An algorithm that finds face-like structures on the Earth’s surface

Just out of curiosity I’d like to share an interesting tool to find structures on Earth’s surface that look like a face. Probably the most famous face has been detected on Mars already in 1976. However that alleged face is not more than a weather geological formation that looks like a face because of the interplay between light and shadow.

Now a Berlin-based company developed a new tool that searches and detects faces on Google Earth pictures. Just have look…
