We've all come to rely on tagging to order our online worlds. It's how we label and find things. But effective and reliable video tagging has so far relied on people painstakingly going through the film and labeling the content manually.
Now Julian Palacz has created an algorithmic search engine for video. It's a great breakthrough in that it's able to search the spoken word directly. His project The Algorithmic Search for Love is currently being exhibited at Sao Paulo's FILE festival. It demonstrates how the search engine works by finding all the scenes with the words "I love you" from Palacz film collection.
