Find This Object Based On My Sketch

from the funky dept

It seems like there are a lot of stories about “search” these days, but most of the focus seems to be on searching based on keywords – even when looking for images. What if you want to sketch the object you’re trying to find and have the search engine understand that and locate the object you (probably badly) drew? It seems that that’s exactly what some researchers are working on. I haven’t had much luck getting the working search engine to find me anything, but the idea seems like it could be useful for someone who has a steadier hand than I do (actually, it appears the server might be down right now).
