New Arbitrage Opportunities for Image Search: Metaphors, Game Metadata, Common Sense

This article (http://www.asis.org/Bulletin/Jun-09/JunJul09_Uzwyshyn.pdf) describes a new opportunity for image search and retrieval by leveraging emergent image retrieval paradigm methodologies (Google Image Labeler/Human Computation) with new interface search possibilities (CoolIris) for the next stage of image search.  I'm also including a link to an earlier unpublished draft below that includes more images that didn't make it into the final version for those more visually oriented folks here.   http://www.uwf.edu/ruzwyshyn/2009PDF/ImageSearchDirections.pdf  Also, this was recently published in the June/July 2009 Bulletin of the American Society of Information Science and Technology devoted almost entirely to Visual Representation, Image Search and Retrieval and containing a wider range of interesting articles regarding images, digital video and current challenges and topics in information visualization.

Thanks for posting this. It's a great article about a terrific interface. Sometime, for HASTAC'ers who may not understand what they can do with it, it would be fantastic if you just wrote a brief post about the possible kinds of uses someone might make of CoolIris. Congratulations!
