Image recognition software

We all know that google regcognizes images based on de text that comes along with the image.
Now, data mining did the trick again. Not a new data mining trick, since “even relatively simple algorithms are able to perform fairly well in identifying images this way”, says Antonio Torralba, assistant professor in MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. With as few as 600 megabytes of data his algorithm is able to recognize 12.9 million images from the Internet. The image database and software to enable searches of the database, are being made publicly available on the web.
The trick is finding very short codes for images.
Here you can watch the explanation.
