Google Lands Patent for Automatic Object Recognition

Google is starting to scare some people just a little with their ability to recognize faces, songs and now all objects in a video. If Google were to connect all of the dots simultaneously, any object could be identified and stored in a database for future use or it could just be used to enhance the Google Street View experience. In any case, Google now owns the patent for the recognition technology.

The one mystery is what Google plans to do with its new found observational skills, if anything.
