Sample Solves

Examples of images we have solved.

Examples of images we haven't.

Good ones for testing tweak:

Mission Critical Path

We've started alpha-testing the service live on the web. What constitutes success is relatively consistent generation of useful metadata for some subset the following categories of potential users:

Once we get some feedback from alpha testing, we will be moving towards beta-testing, which will try to provide metadata for some subset of these:
