An Apple patent shows us photo searches through Siri

Guia de todo lo que puedes pedirle a SiriVía
With a photo library of more than a thousand photographs on my film, poorly organized and with strong headaches when trying to find a particular photo, this patent seems to me a real blessing. The truth is that we are in front of a quite interesting new functionality .

Siri will be adding very interesting features over time, in fact right now it’s not what it was originally. And now we’ll be able to search for the photo we want in a quick and easy way .

It is more than likely that comes into play along with Faces , a feature of iPhoto and Aperture that allows us to sort photos by faces and identify subjects in the photograph. But this new patent goes a bit further. We will be able to classify our photos with tags and name them later to perform searches .

But we are not talking about introducing labels via text with our photographs, but we will introduce them via Siri by voice at the moment of taking the photograph. For example “Vacation Paris 2013” and then call them with Siri when we need to see that particular picture or collection of pictures.

But it won’t stop there, Siri will be able to recognize faces, landscape buildings and even associate photographs with others taken previously .
