Riya, the Killer of Flickr


I love Flickr. It has many features that enable us to manage photo album easily. But, wait… Wired News has just written an article about the upcoming of a new application called Riya.

Riya has a group of determined face recognitionand text recognition researchers and engineers who believe it is time for a new type of photo search that uses technology to look inside and automatically tag photos. Riya hope this will revolutionize how people “see” the world.

The service is still in Alpha testing, and you MUST use Internet Explorer from Microsoft. Otherwise, a message appear when you surf:

During the alpha testing, we only support IE6. By our beta, we will support Firefox. We know, we know…if you are a Firefox fanatic and want to tell us off, do it here

Let’s see the upcoming of Flickr killer!

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Thank you for visiting this blog and leaving a valuable comment. I just quote what WiredNews said about the new application. I myself have not chances to try Riya because I use Flock.

    Thanks, Jeff.
