#Face Detection with Node.js

A simple application showing how face detection can be implemented using Node.js.

Essentially the application tries to mimic (up to a point) the way in which Facebook displays an uploaded photo back to a user with any faces highlighted, in order to prompt them to "tag" people.

Behind the scenes, the application uses the open-source OpenCV library, specifically the Viola-Jones object detection algorithm. In order to run OpenCV from Node.js, it uses the opencv package.

This application accompanies a SitePoint tutorial: Build a Face Detection App Using Nodejs and OpenCV
