“Get the Picture” — The Discovery Files

Engineers out of UC San Diego are developing a system that could change the “look” of Internet search engines. Their approach involves training the system to analyze and recognize the content within an image. The system uses a clever image indexing technique that offers a significant increase in accuracy and efficiency over typical image searches that rely on the text associated with an image. Before too long, it could be… “Mission Possible” in easily finding that exact image you want.
