Viewdle blew my mind
This is so advanced tech stuff that it's not cutting edge it's pure bleeding edge . These Viedwle guys come from Ukraine and they have been developing this facial recognition and video search software within the army and university and it's mind blowing. They won the best start-up prize at the Le Web conference in Paris this week and the truly deserved it.
Viewdle has developed video search tools that previously needed supercomputers to run, but their apps run on regular pc's. Check out their demos on how you can search video material: their software can tell who's on the video, what the subject is and when it's been shot. It's still in some kinda beta version, but you'll get the picture. I guess these ukrainian nerd's are gonna be rich soon.
