HP is still doing cool research

As someone said, future is here, it's just not evenly distributed (yet). I am talking about media search. Previous attempts to do media search relied either on metadata, which is very poor or on SAP for TV feeds, which is much better that metadata, but still somewhat poor in relation to the content it represents. If you have just a little more resources than the rest, you can take a very resource-intensive technology such as speech recognition and and build a search engine on top of it. And since it's on the internet... does it mean it IS evenly distributed?
