There are billions of images on the Internet. Today, searching for a desired image is largely based on textual data such as filename or associated text on the web page; not much use is made of the image content. There are good reasons for this. The field of content-based image retrieval, which emerged during the 1990s, focused primarily on color and texture cues. These were easier to model than shape, but they turned out to be much less useful than originally hoped. I shall review some of the recent developments in the field of visual object recognition in the computer vision community that offer greater promise. Much better image features for characterizing shape, advances in machine learning techniques, and the availability of large amounts of training data lie at the heart of these approaches.

You can stop it, then replay it from that spot where it froze. Then it will work.
