Only in a limited number of circumstances, for example: if the image is
claimed to be an album cover, a bot may detect if it is used in an article
about an album.

In all other circumstances, the bot has to depend on a complete fair use
rationale, one which explicitly states in which articles the image is
used fairly. Fortunately, this is mandatory, so a bot can work 100%
correctly on properly tagged images.
