Facial Recognition Technology for Genealogy
The April speaker will be Daniel Horowitz, an Israeli resident and Web master for the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. He will discuss facial recognition technology, which is used worldwide to catch terrorists in airports. The technology can also help you identify people in old family photos, discover other people related to you and recover lost family connections.
Horowitz was born and raised in Caracas , Venezuela and is a founder and lecturer for the Jewish Genealogy Society of Venezuela. He will be making this presentation to several JGS societies during his trip, including Denver and several on the west coast.
The program is set for 10 a.m., Sunday, April 18 at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright Street, Sacramento.
NBC renews three shows
April 5, 2010 USA TODAY
Just in: NBC has given second seasons to three modestly-rated reality shows, two produced by former network stars Jerry Seinfeld and Lisa Kudrow (Friends), reports USA TODAY's Gary Levin.
Seinfeld's The Marriage Ref, Kudrow's genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are? and Minute to Win It, a game show hosted by Food Network star Guy Fieri, will be back next season with 8 to 10 new episodes. The shows are averaging about 6 to 7 million viewers.
Kudrow, for one, appreciates the vote of confidence: "It's very gratifying to tell compelling stories that personalize history while investigating someone's ancestry, and even more gratifying that American audiences are saying, 'Yes, we want to see that,'" she said in a statement.
See you next Sunday!
