Similar Images

January 5, 2020 posted by

>>ROSENBERG: Hi, my name is Chuck Rosenberg,
and I’m a computer vision researcher at Google working on image search.
I’m here to announce the launch of our Similar Images feature.
Let’s say I do a search for jaguar. I get results for both the car and the animal.
Using the “Similar Images” link, I can get just the results I want.
I can look at pictures of just the jaguar’s face or cool pictures of the car on the road.
Let’s see what other members of the team are searching for.
Hi, Jingbin.>>JINGBIN: Hi, Chuck.>>ROSENBERG: What are you searching for?>>JINGBIN: Oh, I’m just searching for picture
of Brad and Angelina Jolie.>>ROSENBERG: Nice.>>JINGBIN: So now I can find picture with
Brad on the left and also picture with Brad on the right.>>ROSENBERG: Very Cool.>>JINGBIN: Yes, you know, I have to keep
up with my celebrities.>>ROSENBERG: Oh, I know.
Have fun.>>JINGBIN: Okay.
Yup, bye-bye.>>ROSENBERG: See you.>>SARA: Oh, hey, Chuck.>>ROSENBERG: Hey, Sara.
What are you working on?>>SARA: Well, I’m testing how our feature
works with landmarks.>>ROSENBERG: Okay.>>SARA: I just typed “London.”>>ROSENBERG: Uh-huh.>>SARA: And then I clicked “Similar Images”
to see more pictures of the Tower bridge.>>ROSENBERG: Mm-hmm.>>SARA: Big Ben, and the London Eye.>>ROSENBERG: Hmm.
I could use that to plane my next trip. Hmm, I wonder what Eric’s up to.
I’m going to go check that out.>>SARA: Okay, bye.>>ROSENBERG: See you.>>ERIC: Hey, Chuck.>>ROSENBERG: Hey, Eric.>>ERIC: How’s it going?>>ROSENBERG: Great.
What are you looking at?>>ERIC: I’m using our new Similar Images
feature to look for watches. I really like watches with black faces, kind
of like this one here. The nice thing about Similar Images is not
only do I see my regular search result, but I see images on the top that allow me to refine
my search. I think I like this one with the black bezel
even more than the last.>>ROSENBERG: Hmm, I’m not so sure I like
it.>>ERIC: Well, at least you admit you like
the ability to modify your search on the fly.>>ROSENBERG: Definitely, that’s really convenient.
Well, I hope you’ve gotten a good sense on our Similar Images feature.
We hope you’ll give it a try.

  31. 42fba says:

    Finally! A way to restrict the kind of images google serves up. I've been waiting for a feature like that.
    Thanks chuck!

  32. Luis S. Canaán says:

    I was talking about the actors

  50. Jessie Ikhbold says:


  51. Luke Hanks says:

    Wow. Normally they just explain right out what the feature does and what they think we might use it for. I don't know about the new bad script writing and acting.
    I of course mean no offense to the people playing in this video. They're Google. They rock…with computer stuff.
    It's just that the way they used to do the new feature videos was better. Less like advertising and more like informing.

  52. kurrizzle says:

    ITS FAKE OMG!!! =P
    thats really cool, i wonder how works

  53. Thijs Drift says:

  59. fantasyfight123 says:

    hope that it will be implemented in all google-site in the next time 😉

  60. Daniel Verhoef says:

    Not only did I get a sense of the similair images feature I also got a sense of the google acting. LOL

  61. tehcarpet says:

  69. crownedmuffin says:

    angelina jolie and brad pit heh?

  70. Ernie Lopez says:

    brb looking for similar firecrotch…

  71. Luke Hanks says:

    Wait…you claim that choosing your mate even partly based on their appearance is wrong? Romance and business are the exactly the same. If a person finds a certain size, shape, or completion visually appealing then what's wrong with acting on that. Hey heres a funny Idea. There are a lot of Asians in Asia. I think they might end up married to each other. I guess that means their a bunch of racists because they didn't go out of their way to find some minority that would then be in high demand.

  72. Ingo Petzny says:

    Great feature…. so usefull.
    Thanks Google !

  73. Bindi k says:

    remember william hung from american idol? same idea.

  74. Evan Kaufman says:

  75. MajikSo says:

    'Brad on the left and now Brad on the right' hahaha
    sounds like a good joke.
    That was cool guys!

  76. zanderzander05 says:

    'Hey Eric, what you looking at?'
    *slam shut*

  77. atan0k says:

    Great feature, awful video.
    Please stay away from the ridiculous over-friendliness gimmicks typical of those the shitheads at Microsoft advertisement.

  78. haasboer says:

    Nice and handy feature.. but this video is just gay.

  79. photocide1 says:

    ya i totally agree, especially that last one where hes liek "well at least you … " just kinda ruined it a bit it was weird

  80. chawee busayarat says:

  87. Flyborg says:

    After rolling this feature out to the "regular" image search, it seems to have mysteriously disappeared, not just from regular image search, but even from the "similar-images" URL which was SPECIFICALLY for that purpose. I can't find any mention of this anywhere. 🙁

  88. Saiful Basir says:

    what about watches with white faces? o_O

  89. Premises187 says:

    Hi Jing-Bin

  90. Bagatell says:

  91. Shititude says:

    1:58 this move is just EPIC

  92. Amelia Gillis says:

  93. FirebirdBeats says:

    btw, That acting is hilariooous

  94. Taenbo Druvs says:
