I'm afraid that KPA can't really automate the tagging process. The closest 
thing to this would be the Geotagging KIPI plugin, which can automatically add 
place tags depending on the GPS info in the exif data.

I'm skeptical that imgseek would give you really usable results. I'm yet to 
see a similarity-based image-search product that gets you accurate results for 
images that are not just a (cropped/rotated) copy of the reference images.

Adding some kinds of automated tagging (for faces) has been a feature request 
for a long time [1]. So far, nobody has tried to implement this.
