Google demonstrates quantum computer image search

This could revolutionize how we store and interact with data. Think if you could just store pictures and did not have to tag that picture like today to say what was in it. Also, then you could just store pictures of information and completely eliminate digital text - what would that mean to us? Pictures take up more storage but with the cost of data storage lowering by leaps and bounds (1 TB HDD's < $100 US) that might not matter. It will definitely make storage of information easier because we will not have to describe the picture anymore and can then gather new information that is contained in pictures that we did not even know was there.
