hello Neil,

  facial recognition uses eigenvalues
and some matrices calculation. Perhaps
an algorithm can be used to classify those
300000 graphics.

  See here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eigenface

Well, I will think of something to do the job,

  ... my first impression is : we do not need something
so sophisticated,

  Best regards,
