Yahoo Launches Similarity Searching for Flickr

Yahoo has launched similarity searching for Flickr. “With billions of photos on Flickr, finding the ones you want – by searching based on tags and descriptions – only gets you so far. Today, we’re introducing similarity search, which uses advanced technology to allow you to discover visually similar photos without much work on your end. Here’s how it works: after your initial search, whether you’re looking for your favorite succulent or the perfect image of a ‘67 Mustang (not the horse), just click the ‘…’ in the upper right of the photo you’re excited about. We’ll surface similar images for you.”
