PRESS RELEASE

Plink is joining Google!
Apr 12th, 2010
by mark.

We have some very exciting news – Plink has just been acquired by Google.

We started Plink to bring the power of visual search to everyone, and we’re delighted to be taking a big step towards that goal today. Google has already shown that it’s serious about investing in this space with Google Goggles, and for the Plink team the opportunity to take our algorithms to Google-scale was just too exciting to pass up.

For Plink as a company, it’s been a short but exciting ride – only four months since our public launch. We shot past 50,000 users in just four short weeks, and we’ve continued to get great feedback and suggestions over the months since then. For all our users: nothing is changing. PlinkArt will continue to be available for download and work as it currently does today. However, we won’t be updating the app and will instead focus our development efforts on Google Goggles, so you’ll see new functionality appearing there in the future.

The visual search engines of today can do some pretty cool things, but they still have a long long way to go. We’re looking forward to helping the Goggles team build a visual search engine that works not just for paintings or book covers, but for everything you see around you. There are beautiful things to be done with computer vision – it’s going to be a lot of fun!

All the best,
Mark & James
