Riya - Photo album with face recognition

Have you ever tried to find a specific picture in your photo album?
Riya is a new photo album site that implemented a new face recognition technology.
What this means for us, is that during upload of pictures, Riya automatically recognizes faces within our pictures. After an intial training session in which we let Riya know which faces belong to our friends and family, it starts finding them in other pictures we uploaded.
I have already uploaded over 6,000 pictures and was amazed to see how easy it was to search my albums by people in them.

Check out Riya

Jeremy,
I have also used flickr as well as yahoo photos before but Riay is by far the best solution for me.
