QNAP has enhanced Photo Station with AI-based facial recognition.
As the number of photos on your NAS increases, this can be an exceptionally useful feature for quickly finding important photos of people and special occasions.
An intro to facial recognition machine learning. Pretty broad topic, but as far as use QNAP users are concerned for photostation, using it for photo management unless of course your using the video surveilance apps that use facial recognition for security purposes.
I got a ton of images, but i'm a bit lax on file naming them. So facial recognition would help me tag a bunch of images based on the same character for an easy search.
Also helps me find dupes. Though i did use the dupeguru to do this earlier, it doesn't hurt to have a second means for reviewing the images whether there any dupes. for example... i saw some variations of an image that dupeguru did not pick up, because it wasn't 100% the same. so i delete what i felt was unneeded.
few easy setup steps
in app center, install photostation
Go to multimedia management and install the media addon for photostation *to add facial recognition

in multimedia management, you can set realtime scan, or not. also in the media folder tab you can specify which share folder location you want it to be scanning, and also for what media type.
Once you done that, go to photostation. then go to the people tab on the left side panel. in the tag section, if a result for a character shows multiple instances, you can ctrl + left click each of the multiple instances of the same person, then click the "V" then select add tag. This should merge them all into 1 character. Then to select the nicest pic to represent the character, browse the character album for this tagged person, select the image, and select add as image cover for this person.
