Demo 2006: Riya was one of the hottest products shown demo. It's been in development for over two years, and was the talk of Silicon Valley when Google was rumored to be acquiring the company. I saw it a few months ago, and it has come a long way since then. The software does one thing well--use face and text recognition to search through photos. The demo given by CEO Munjal Shah today shows that the alogrithms are improving as well as the user interface. Munjal said the product will be availabe for public beta in two weeks. Don't miss it.
