Yippidy-DOO-DA my metadata photo tagging days are over!
Well they never really started since I was way to upset to have to go and do all of that for every darn photograph I've taken on my digital camera.
Well I'm so freakin happy about this new emerging technology I'm actually a bit edgy since I have to wait until who knows how many days after CeBit to get my hands on it myself but any-hoo... this is "and I'll quote" the amazingness I am to expect (as should you)
"aceMedia analyzes new photos using various visual and content-based characteristics. Hardly anything escapes the system during this analysis: aceMedia can recognize, for instance, whether a picture was taken indoors or outdoors, and whether it depicts a landscape or a man-made environment. This means that it can distinguish between, say, a beach panorama and a city skyline. It can even memorize people’s faces. If aceMedia later recognizes a face, it allocates that person’s name to the corresponding picture. Following the analysis, the system automatically ‘labels’ each photograph according to its characteristics. Experts also refer to these digital labels as metadata. These enable a picture to be easily found at any time. Yet another function of aceMedia is that it can automatically organize photos and videos into separate collections of different topics or time periods according to the user’s preferences."
