Photosynth at TED Conference
This is an excellent video of a PhotoSynth demo by Microsoft at a TED conference. It talks about Photosynth, the technology behind it, as well as the future that this type of technology enables. I would really like to see this technology being used in image searches (where currently images are returned based only on the context within a web-page - this technology allows you to determine closeness of images based on the image content itself).
