Don't blink!

Wired reports on a project from Columbia Univ that connects the scanning power of the human brain with the iterative power of the computer to do some fancy relevancy ranking with images. The idea is to use the technology for security folks who have to view bunches and bunches of images. Your brain recognizes images much faster than you can consciously identify them. As you scan bunches and bunches of images the computer takes note of which images your brain reacts to and brings those images to the top of the list.
