Report: Apple Acquiring Facial Recognition Company, Polar Rose [businessinsider.com]

Apple has acquired Swedish tech company Polar Rose, 9 to 5 Mac reports.

Polar Rose specializes in facial recognition technology. It just recently decided to start licensing its technology.

Apple already uses some facial recognition technology in iPhoto. Perhaps it will expand that? Or maybe it will use the technology in the mobile area.
