Digg.com, a client of Canadian web development firm silverorange, is now partnering with another Canadian company: Idée. Idée, who we previously profiled here, will be providing software to detect multiple submissions of the same image to Digg.com’s new dedicated images section.
Fans of Digg know that a dedicated images section has been in demand for some time now and by avoiding the noise of having multiples of the same image uploaded, Digg can provide a much better service than their competitors.
From the Digg.com Blog:
Sorting and Duplicate Image Detection
We?ve added a new sort to the images section called ?mosaic? view ? it?s great for browsing image thumbnails. To help prevent people from submitting duplicate images, we?ve added image recognition technology from Idée Inc.
Congratulations to everyone at Idée on this deal and on the new website, it looks great.
Idée has a follow-up post with a lot of information here.
