Even if the description is not usable directly, this could be also interesting to suggest categories for the user to add.

Face detection could be interesting when combined with T58666, to invite people to add annotations. claims to have a database built from Commons images, might be interesting to test.

Might be also interesting for visual captchas (T64960) although using a publicly available algorithm is always a weakness there.
