Jaguar or Jaguar? Google Images knows

Wed 22 April 2009 11:09, Bas van den Beld

Yet another new feature came out of the Google developers yesterday. In case you've missed it: Google Labs now has "Similar Images".

With "Similar Images" Google now can 'see' the differences between an image of a Jaguar car or a Jaguar animal. Underneath an image a link to 'similar images' is placed. By clicking the link Google will find similar images to the one you chose.

Jaguar or Jaguar? Google Images knows

With this feature, though still in beta, Google makes a big step towards more understanding the real thoughts behind a search. Google can now 'see' the difference between images.

It's not just the content of the picture that Google analyses, its also the type of the picture. Is it a funny one? Google will find a funny picture. Is it a drawing? Similar images will all be drawings.

Though it seems like a small thing, the new feature is actually a big step
