I have like a trillion of images in my disk and want to classify them basically in 2 groups:

  • Those images which includes people (bodies or faces)
  • Those images which does not include people

Any desktop software - preferably Open Source - to help me on this?

  • I imagine this is a common task for which a thousand different trained machine learning algorithms have been produced and are published open source. I personally do not know of any, though.

  • Depending on your expertise and how much time you're willing to put in, this open source demo may suit you. It requires you to train it on a sampling of images first, however. On the upside, it can identify particular people once you've trained it.

DigiKam has a facial recognition module.

  • LR 6 also have, but IMHO both of them you need to train to recognize particular faces Feb 25 '17 at 15:17

    Terminology — face detection is finding the location of human faces in an image, while facial recognition is identifying individuals.
