The Web That Thinks
The following information specific to the Russian market is adapted from an article by the business publication “Vzglyad,” which was produced largely from this useful article from the Daily Telegraph.

Its technology allows searches for people’s faces through facial recognition software crossed with search engine software, which finds faces similar to the searched face.
Experts explain that many existing research companies already changed their focus to semantic search. Whether it will be in demand by users, the question still remains.
