Widening the scope of search

The ability to search for images and video based on their actual content, rather than keywords or other accompanying info, gets closer.

Google has lodged a patent for a method of allowing their search robots to read text that appears in image and video files, which they’ll be able to index for search.

This means they’ll be able to index information that’s never been available before, widening the scope of search massively.
