Submission + - Student maps brain to image search (

StonyandCher writes: "A Canadian computer science grad is mapping the way the human brain works to technology that will power a search engine for visual images to be launched mid next year. "The brain is very parallel. There's lots of things going on at once," he said. "Graphics processors are also very parallel, so it's a case of almost mapping the brain onto graphics processors, getting them to process visual information more effectively." The University of Ottawa said master's student Kris Woodbeck was working with the government's Technology Transfer and Business Enterprise (TTBE) office to secure a patent on his approach, which will form the intellectual property for a startup devoted to image search."
