Ask Jeeves improves image search

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:00 pm

Ask Jeeves has launched its first proprietary image search technology, which features improvements to its image search ranking algorithms and new related search suggestions that offer suggestions on how to narrow or expand the search. The image search technology uses Ask Jeeves’ algorithmic search ranking which clusters the Web into topic areas and determines the ranking of pages within that area.

New sophisticated image recognition technologies measure attributes such as image type, shape, brightness and contrast level to determine picture quality. The search site is at pictures.ask.com.
