Google VisualRank

Google VisualRank

Google researchers at a web conference in Beijing announced they work on some kind of PageRank specifically aimed at images. Called VisualRank, the technology was so far only applied to a smaller test set of images, as apparently applying it to all images Google indexed would be too computing-intensive (even arguably the worlds largest super-computer cant do everything imaginable yet). According to the New York Times yesterday, visual rank is an algorithm for blending image-recognition software methods with techniques for weighting and ranking images that look most similar, and in Googles internal scoring tests it achieved far higher quality results.
