image search with tiltomo

a new experimental service is available that gets one step closer to cracking the problem of image search. whereas google and the other search engines have to look for ‘meta’ clues like alt tags and filenames, tiltimo works by comparing pixels and looking for trends.

we’re not quite in the sci fi realm of being able to spot familial links in ancestral photos, but definitely a step closer to finding common themes in images. just look at this search for techno and compare with flikr and google images.
