Google Image Labeler : Improve Image Search Results

How many times have you searched for keywords on the wonderful Google Image Search and got irrelevant results. Now Google is harnessing the support of the active image searching community to help label images using the Google Image Labeler so that the search results quality can be improved.

How does it work? You’ll be randomly paired with a partner who’s online and using the feature. Over a 90-second period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner’s label, you’ll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you’ve seen and the websites where those images were found. And we’ll show you the points you’ve earned throughout the session.

I like the idea. Use Google Image Labeler to help improve the relevance of image search results. Just one grudge if you are in a hurry … since both you and your partner have to pass the image before skipping to the next one. Its just that my random partner took too long…
