bing_vs_google

Seven ways BING is engineering picture search to be better than Google.  An excellent article from Bing’s own blog:

  1. Understanding what is being searched for: person, place, or thing?
  2. How do other users feel about it? using big data
  3. Perceiving pictures like a human brain does
  4. Thematic intent focus brings up pictures to be used for the same purpose
  5. Not including duplicates or near-duplicates, to improve breadth of image selection
  6. Clustering images in a way that makes them easier to view at a glance
  7. Better quality images first.
