My Heritage Finds Alan Turing in a Tree

This morning, Jen and I were playing with MyHeritage.com‘s facial recognition system.

Here you can see the MyHeritage system found Jen’s face and someone lurking in the bushes.

Who could it be hiding in the Belgian forest?

Perhaps British mathematician, logician, and cryptographer Alan Turing?
Alan Turing

Maybe, star of television’s Baywatch and Knight Rider, David Hasselhoff (I’ve heard he’s big in Germany)?
David Hasselhoff

Or prehaps German-born author Anne Frank?
Ann Frank
