Image Search: Some Tips for Searching with the GazoPa (Beta)

We've mentioned this interesting image search engine several times on ResourceShelf in the past five weeks. This beta search tool from Hitachi is definitely worth a look.

Our original ResourceShelf post offers a look at GazoPa's primary features.

[GazoPa] allows the user to upload an image, enter an image URL, draw a picture (cool!), or keyword search a database, and then find SIMILAR images based on the image that was uploaded or keyword searched. You can also combine an image (what they call a "key image") with keyword(s). A Firefox addon, a bookmarklet, an iPhone app and [a Facebook tool], are available.

Today, the GazoPa Blog offers a few search tips for utilizing their database.

They're both things you, as the searcher, can do (for example, a face search) as well as things the company can offer a better search (they are developing new search query limits).

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    Information assets are in the hands of the right people to safeguard them but the wrong people to manage their exploitation concludes an influential new study. As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.
