Sketch to Search

Auren Hoffman alerted me to Retrievr.  He comments:

we’re getting closer and closer to fast image recognition technology
which will totally change the way we process and search pictures,
photos, videos, etc.

I agree, and further think that innovation in this area will start effecting how search is viewed by the masses.  Today, search is typically pointed to the body of information outside of our domain.  Increasingly, as it goes beyond text, it can be pointed within our domain – approximating Vannevar Bush’s Memex.

I am happy we’re moving in this direction.
