Robert Sayre那看到, Yahoo(Flickr的创办人等)申请了“Interestingness ranking of media object”的专利

Media objects, such as images or soundtracks, may be ranked according to a new class of metrics known as “interestingness.” These rankings may be based at least in part on the quantity of user-entered metadata concerning the media object, the number of users who have assigned metadata to the media object, access patterns related to the media object, and/or a lapse of time related to the media object.

尝试翻译一下(注:如被误导,拒不负责):

对媒质对象,例如图像或者录制的音乐,根据一种新的被称为“引起兴趣的”度量进行分级排序。这种方式至少部分基于媒质上的用户输入的元数据的数量,对媒质对象标记元数据的用户的数量,关于媒质对象的访问模式,并且/或者关于这个媒质对象的一段时间。
