Face completion with a multi-output estimators

This example shows the use of multi-output estimator to complete images. The goal is to predict the lower half of a face given its upper half.

The first column of images shows true faces. The next columns illustrate how extremely randomized trees, k nearest neighbors, linear regression and ridge regression complete the lower half of those faces.
