+ - Google Patents Software that Identifies Real World Objects within Videos->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "Google has been recently granted a patent that could not only improve online search but, also will possibly give the search engine giant an awful lot of information about the world. Google, through the software, wants to scan and analyze the content within videos, YouTube videos most probably, and look for objects in the real world, identify them, and make a catalogue out of those objects. The patent describes Google’s technology of scanning a video, picking out landmarks, objects and context; and subsequent tagging and categorization."
