Famous people face metadata

X
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?

The question is a bit vague and unclear. Who are "famous" people? What's considered metadata information? Do you need an API you can send the "famous people" names to and get back information about them? Or do you need to send actual binary (images) to be processed and then detecting "famous people" from them and then providing information?

Please clarify and elaborate.

Thanks.

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

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.

@Apurva Kansara:

The question is still unclear on many levels.
Can you please just state the end goal?
I really still have no idea what you're looking for.

Also, if the data is already on Wikipedia, why not just grab it from there?

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.

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