Image search engines keep launching

Filed under: Image search, rants, news — Peter @ 10:25 pm

After Google “launched” its ImageRank - by presenting a paper about it, now there are two more.

First, Idée “publicly launched” its image search engine (report here). If you want to try it, they’ll put you on a waiting list. How is it different from what we saw before?

Second, “Pixsta launches image search engine” (report here). Testing is also closed. What is the difference from what we saw before?

The only good thing here is that I discovered a better term for visual image search, CBIR, etc. It’s “image-to-image search“, as opposed to text-to-text and text-to-image we are familiar with.
