Photosketch Internet Image Montage: This Needs to be Out Now

by Lambert Varias

Developed by a team of students from Tsinghua University and the National University of Singapore, Photosketch is a more practical version of Scribblenauts. Say you want to have a picture of a shark jumping out of the sea in an attempt to swallow a helicopter. All you have to do create a rough sketch the helicopter and the shark, like would in MS Paint. Then you label both figures, and add an additional label for the background, i.e. the sea. Photosketch will then trawl the internet for images that fit your sketch and stitch them together.

The image above is an actual result from Photosketch. This shit is magical. The crucial thing about Photosketch of course is the algorithm that selects the images that best fit a given sketch. Instead of pretending to understand these things, I’ll just let Tao Chen, one of the students behind the program, explain it to you:

Photosketch is so awesome that the webpage it was on had to be taken down, most likely due to the massive hits that it got. Although personally I think that the program can still be improved – for example, it seems that you can’t look for a specific entity, say “Cheney” to go along with “rifle” and “face” – this is definitely truly really mind blowing technology. Nerd Powah!
