Riya has developed software that can automatically recognize who is in a picture and tag it with their names.
Currently in alpha testing, the software has proven sensitive enough to tell the difference between twins and recognize members of the same family. It can even read street signs for clues about a picture’s location.
“We want to help make every photo in the world something you can find,” said CEO Munjal Shah. “We’re capturing every moment of our lives as human beings, and we can’t search it today. We’ll feel we’ve done our job when you can search every photo.”
Om Malik thinks Google may be acquiring Riya.
