Expanding Search Beyond the Semantic Frontier

Alex Pardee’s Escaping Conviction, circa 2010

Here we have a little something about similarity concepts and search.

Why must we limit the internet to text? Sure we have a rudimentary image search function, but I’m referring here to the way we search our own memories. We don't use text only, we use our bodies, our autobiographies, the mental maps in our heads...

Explaining this new method for searching with a sketch vs. keywords:
“In designing the system, the researchers deliberately set a very broad similarity concept and adapted it to different types of sketch; for example, similar colors, shapes or directions of movement.”
