Just over a week ago I posted that we’ve managed to grab over 90,000 medical images. That figure has now risen to 284,398. The figure shouldn’t go any higher but will certainly get lower. Our system which grabs the images is fairly sophisticated but it still grabs any image on a page (based on certain parameters). As a result a chunk of those 284,398 images will be ‘junk’. The only way to weed out this junk is for them to be manually reviewed and inappropriate images exluded. If this is completed before the launch (sometime in the next 10-14 days) it’ll be a miracle, but even if it’s not completed by then it’ll gradually improve over time. Even if we end up with ONLY 100,000 images it’ll still be an amazing collection.
