This is a work of genius – Google Image Labeller

Here’s the deal – Google image search can be a bit, well crappy, at times, because images on the web don’t really have much in the way of metadata  – it has to guess what a picture is all about from the surrounding text.

So Google have come up with a game, where you’re partnered with a random person and shown a series of images.  You type in keywords for the picture and your partner does as well.  When you both match the same terms you get 100 points and a new picture.

Ok, it’s not the best online game you’ll ever find, but you are doing something useful and helping to make it easier to find pictures to plagiarise in the future 😉
