    The initial success of Web-image search was based exclusively on the text around an image. Certainly we have progressed since then. But recent research results dramatically beg to differ. For example, if you want to judge the similarity of two different pieces of music, should you look at the musical notes, or should you look at what people say about the music? Similarly, how should you find the b... View full abstract»
