Visual search is a major designer in a search feature known as product recognition. It works in a similar way to facial recognition. However, the main purpose is to allow individuals with the ability to track down items online by using an image instead of attempting to make an online keyword search for it. This is a brand new search function that is different from anything else out there. So, for individuals who are looking for a new way to perform online searches, this product recognition service might just be the service they are looking for.
Slyce has been working on the product recognition system for some time and the service is continually expanding. With the product, it is possible for the search service to compare previously scanned and saved images against its databanks. This way, the more images and content are search performs, the more information it has to compare the searched images with. This way, it is always growing and expanding.
With the search feature, there is no need for keywords. The search method works in a different manor. Instead, the search feature is able to identify different variables in the image itself. This includes size, color, shape, texture, material and dozens of other variables. This way, it can cross-reference the items with the millions of other items found in the search field. By having more elements to cross-reference it provides a more definitive result. This is extremely important when it comes to image recognition, especially with a product. By being able to cross identify the different variables and elements of a single product, it becomes possible to locate an item online and to provide an online shopper with the ability to find exactly what it is they are looking for.
The more stores that sign up with the product recognition service, the larger the reserve of information the recognition feature is going to be. As more and more major and smaller brands come to this feature, it makes it so much easier for customers to find exactly what they want. Naturally, this is just the beginning of product recognition software running in a similar format to search engines only using images instead of words. However, as it grows it is going to be able to provide a much better search result display than any other search option out there, which is exactly why companies are jumping on board with this technology.
