Researchers Create New Intelligent Software (The Economic Times)

“By studying results from text-based image search engines, the software recognizes the pixels associated with a search phrase and applies them to other photos without tags or captions, locating them more accurately,” the newspaper explains .

Lorenzo Torresani, an associate professor of computer science and co-author of the study, says that “modern machine vision systems are accurate and efficient enough to make effective use of the information contained in image pixels to improve document search.“
