The Pharos consortium is delighted to announce the launch of a database to perform visual searches on images designed by computer scientist John Resig. In its initial phase, the database holds 91,086 images of Italian works of art from six of the fourteen member institutions. It will continue to grow as more images become available. See Resig's "Using Computer Vision to Increase the Research Potential of Photo Archives" to learn more about this work.
