Did you know you can now do an image search on Google – by drag and dropping an image into the search box?
It’s like Google Goggles but works with any image on your computer.
Not incredibly accurate at this point, but I remember when it was a new thing, to speak into a microphone and have it translated to text. No one thought it was ever going to be very good, let alone inexpensive.
Now Natural Dragon costs under $100 and is highly accurate.
Same thing with music recognition. Shazam is amazingly accurate.
Watch for this technology to get better and better and become widely used.
