Visual Searching with Google – One Example – Neo4j – Raspberry Pi

Just to show I don’t spend too much time thinking of ways to gnaw on the ankles of Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), the hoarders of the Panama Papers, here is my experience with visual searching with Google today.

I saw this image on Twitter:

neo4j-cluster

I assumed that cutting the “clutter” from around the cluster might produce a better result. Besides, the plastic separators looked (to me) to be standard and not custom made.

Here is my cropped image for searching:

neo4j-cluster-cropped

Google responded this looks like: “water.” 😉

OK, so I tried cropping it more just to show the ports, thinking that might turn up similar port arrangements, here’s that image:

neo4j-cluster-ports

Google says: “machinery.” With a number of amusing “similar” images.

BTW, when I tried the full image, the first one, Google says: “electronics.”

OK, so much for Google image searching. What if I try?

Searching on neo4j cluster and raspberry pi (the most likely suspect), my first “hit” had this image:

1st-neo4j-hit

Same height as the search image.

My seventh “hit” has this image:

bruggen-cluster

Same height and logo as the search image. That’s Stefan Armbruster next to the cluster. (He does presentations on building the cluster, but I have yet to find a video of one of those presentations.)

My eight “hit

neo4j-8th

Common wiring color (networking cable), height.

Definitely Raspberry Pi but I wasn’t able to uncover further details.

Very interested in seeing a video of Stefan putting one of these together!
