Like.com uses face recognition technology; it looks inside a photo and creates a digital signature that describes the photo's content and enables a more accurate search for similar looking items.
Now you can search images... i.e., information visualzation re-vitalized by a Web 2.0's team of Indian Guru: Munjal Shah @ Like.com [PS. riya -- Arabic word for hypocrisy, or ostentation or show-off in a egoistic sense; the following is not that riya, rather this is all-ado-about best practices]
What others say:
"AI is also being used at Riya to find photos by matching on characteristics - density, patterns, colours" says Gwen
"Like.com is from the creators of Riya.com,which in short, is a photo sharing storage system with some smart AI(artificail intelligence). You dump in a thousand plus images in, tag a few, and riya starts to recognize images of people, puts them in groups, and automatically tags them over time. Riya recognizes colors, images, text, faces, and much more. The more people that do this and share their images, the better. Imagine seeing all those pictures of yourself from other peoples cameras during those holiday vacations you walked into!" continue reading @ designverb
