Suppose you could tell us up front why this may be of importance in the greater frame of things, rather than expect each one of us to research this piece of opaque info by ourselves?

It's mostly a talent acquisition for the 2 PhD founders of Plink. They plan to apply their algorithms to Google's visual search platform, Goggles. Their Android app, PlinkArt, allows users to take photos of paintings with their smartphones before analyzing and identifying them. They won $100k in the Android developer challenge for the best reference app last December.
