The face recognition software at MyHeritage analyses a photograph of oneself and suggests a range of celebrities one slightly resembles. I haven't tried it myself, and I have no plans to post a photo of myself on the web, but Andrew Scott had an intriguing idea: what would happen if one inputted a celebrity's face?
The suitably baffling result is that Neil Gaiman looks like Neil Gaiman – but only 66%. Apparently he has almost as great a resemblance (63%) to Johnny Depp (actually, the reference photo is from precisely the same angle, which might be significant) and 58% to... the Duchess of York?
