Thanks a lot. This talk is just dated yesterday, May 19. I'm getting into it right now, and already the idea of geo-tagging content (such as the GPS for where a picture was taken) has my wheels turning.

Interesting stuff. Still reviewing the video and can see why tedster's wheels are turning...
As press and visually focused as the folks at Google seem to be getting, I'm starting to wonder if they plan to buy any broadcast networks or media companies in the near future.
It would seem a logical extension to their online ad network, providing a ready source for their media ads that go beyond web based advertising.
Now they can tell you everything you would want to know about yourself, identify you in any pictures and finally knowing all the demo data, be able to tell you what you might want to buy before you actually are aware you want to buy it.
With your medical records online, they could even set up some nifty public Google retina scanners and to allow them to present ads on street level billboards targeted to your specific interests.
Perhaps the vision of our future really is one as shown in Minority Report. After all, a few years from now, you really won't mind having that GPS/Mediscan tracking chip implanted... it won't hurt a bit.

Great video, several tangible ideas will be coming out of this. I only wish they would have shown the display more when the presenters were speaking.
I geo-tagged just about everything on our website to *hopefully* take advantage of the particular geo concepts from within the video. It will be interesting to see if any of the local search properties pick up on these.

Interesting, this is something a partner and I have been working on, targeting GEO tags with media based on an api.

Real or Windows Media Player? Did I just time travel back to 1999?

at least it was easy to save for later w/o copying cache files...

Does geo-tagging include what direction you were facing when the picture was taken?
Image recognition just sounds like technology they developed for YouTube for DMCA stuff. Maybe Google can compete with airline or casino security to detect criminals or FBI's most wanted in real-time.
