I wonder who the Google bosses are voting for.
Associating Text and Names with Images
Deciding what images are associated with which queries first depends upon a search engine associating images with keywords that might be used as search queries.
A web crawling program travels through the web and aggregates images and text that appears on the same pages as those images. It might take all of the text from those pages and store it in a database, or text that is only a certain distance away from the pictures.
It might also look for text that is associated with an image, but is found on a different pages (perhaps links to the picture, and possibly text associated with those links).
Ranking factors are then used to determine the relevance of a picture to the query, and the order that these associated images are presented to a searcher.
A name detection program might recognize a query as a personís name, and might trigger the use of a face detector program, to show people in response to queries that use peopleís names.
