But if they could, they could comb through hours of video for the two or three minutes that a viewer might be interested in, or perform web searches where the search term was an image, not a sequence of words. And of course, object recognition is a prerequisite for the kind of home assistance robot that could execute an order like "Bring me the stapler."

Microsoft unveiled Microsoft Tag for Google Android, which allows users to scan a customized tag with their smartphone's camera module and receive multimedia and other content on their screen. Although Microsoft is contesting fiercely with Google, Apple and other companies in the smartphone space, it evidently recognizes the opportunities to spread its products to as many users as possible by creating applications for its rivals' mobile app storefronts.

Google has been expanding the number of applications available for its smartphone operating system in a bid to increase its market share in the mobile space.
