Riya visual search

In September, Riya will launch a service that will let you upload an image and search for similar images. It's a radically new approach to image searching. In many ways, it's far more efficient. For instance, you wouldn't get a page with photos of the feline mammal alongside the car if you search for "jaguar," like this page from Google images. There is a slght downside to this service, however. But it's probably something that can be easily tweaked. Nonetheless, it's a great new way to search! Read my thoughts on my MarketWatch blog for more.

Also, here's a video of Riya's CEO Munjal Shah speaking very personally about how Riya got its name. He also shares other interesting background information about the company.
