Pixsy Visual Search Uses RSS To Power Image Search Index

Stefanie Olsen of News.com reports on Pixsy’s launch of visual search at http://www.pixsy.com/. So what makes Pixsy unique? Well, it burns through RSS feeds to generate an image index of fresh and keyword relevant pictures and videos. Take a search on red flowers as an example; it uses this AJAX technology to show you details, on-click, of the image including the keywords associated with the image, the date/time/location it was indexed, the “context” it came from and the source, and a link to the source. Gary Price also has a write up on Pixsy here.
