Google making use of Neven Vision?

May 31, 2007

It seems Google may have slipped in some Neven Vision functionality into their image search without telling anyone!

It is now possible to search for images that only contain faces by appending the “&imgtype=face” query string onto the end of a search URL. There is currently no way to indicate that you only want to search for faces through the image search interface.

Is this going to pave the way for proper image recognition? Imagine being able to upload a photo of a friend and find all other images of them automagically!

    This is a feature that we’ve launched some time ago, you can see it describe in our post, it’s a one click feature, you don’t even need to add code in the search field.
