The Future of Image networking

I just watched the most amazing video of a new product called Photosynth from Microsoft. This post may be a little more technical than most of my posts here, but I was so blown away by the possibilities of a system like this, that I had to post about it. In the video a Microsoft Live Labs Architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas gives a demonstration of Photosynth.
The Photosynth application uses algorithms to interpret, categorize image data and create links between related images and other data from anywhere on the net. Basically it's building a "Visual Web" on top of the existing Internet.

For the original source of the video above go to TED: Talks Blaise Aguera y Arcas: Jaw-dropping Photosynth demo
