Computer scientists Paul Viola and Michael Jones triggered a revolution in the field of computer face detection in 2001. Their breakthrough was an algorithm that could spot faces in an image in real time, the so-called Viola-Jones algorithm was so fast and simple that it was soon built into standard point and shoot cameras.
