Scientists at the University of Chicago have created Webseer, a search engine that catalogues and searches photographs and other images. The navigator has so far logged one million of the estimated 30 million images on the Web and its creators plan to increase this to five million by the end of January.
Other organisations are developing photographic databases and search engines, which, like Webseer, can distinguish elements such as skin tones and also search for pictures based on the accompanying text. Lycos is the first commercial search engine to support picture searches, and Columbia University offers a site called Webseek.
