honestly very excited for CLIP or something similar to be used in search engines for image search. image search currently sucks because they have to trust the surrounding text/alt text to give context

example: "dark brown box with grey lettering"

an image like this almost definitely exists on the internet, but it's unlikely to be labelled that way. it would more than likely be labelled with something like "box of hershey bars" or whatever the box *actually* contains

someone should download that huge archive of creative commons images that the archiveteam scraped a while ago and create a CLIP powered search engine. that would honestly kill

I've been wanting to do this for a while but the warc filetype confuses me

@SuricrasiaOnline you can already do this locally, at least, there's a few tools for it

@SuricrasiaOnline I've seen this: github.com/JCBrouwer/mmss and there's also same.energy/ which uses a similar model but they don't mention details iirc
