Right now most CBIR systems are nice because instead of entering text to find images, you provide or click on an existing image to find related ones. This is very useful, but computer scientists are interested in something more.
I dream of a day when the computer can automatically annotate images for me. When I can create a photo album of all my friends, simply annotate a few images that contain my friend 'john' and from then on out the system automagically clusters all the images that contain 'john'.
