Similar Image Search with Google Labs

Google has been hard at work in image processing and image recognition. Today, we're able to use some of that expertise with a new service: Similar Images Search.

Using this Similar Images Search from Google Labs, you can easily find similar images to the one you're interested in. This is particularly useful, for instance, when you're search term represent several different items.
As shown on the following video, if you're searching for "jaguar", you'd be presented with images of bothe the animal as well as cars from that brand. Now, you can easily zoom in on the ones you really want.

... I imagine that, in a couple of years we'll be doing the same kind of stuff... with video! :)
