Diversions, Organization, Photography, Useful Things, Websites by Richard

Riya is an application that has the ability to recognize people in your photos, no matter where they happen to be, or what they’re doing in the photo. It’s a pretty cool way to search through your photos… much better than organizing photos by event or by date, then searching for someone particular by hand. Someone’s just invested 15 million into the company (probably Google or Yahoo), so chances are good that you’ll see Riya technology in Flickr or Picasa in the future. I can’t wait! Riya seems to be in private beta right now, but you might be able to pick up an invite here.
