Famous people face metadata

Anonymous

This is perhaps long shot but I am currently looking for some APIs that outputs metadata information of famous people given an image. 

Do you know any company that provides that for bulk use?

I think you're going to need to mash up two APIs such as http://www.lambdal.com/ and the Wikipedia API.

Clarifying some of the questions -

By famous people, I meant celebrities, sportsmen, politicians etc (anyone who have their wikipedia page)

Metadata - name, the kind (actor, sportsman, politician), gender, age, etc.

Not 100% clear on the goal here but have you looked at Factual.com?

Hi Apurva - sounds like you might be looking for some celebrity face recognition module?  is that it?  if so, I don't know of anyone who does this directly.  however, there are companies like
that must have the capability because they use face recognition to match you to celebrities.  we have some face recognition expertise in house (not for celebrities) so happy to help if I can.
