Visual Search for Online Shopping


If an image is worth a thousand words, why not let users search for products using the image itself? Visual search is based on searching by image content. The result is ordered by visual similarity scores calculated by analyzing image content characteristics such as color distribution, geometry and texture. Visual search is advantageous because it is more intuitive and retrieves more accurate results by visual similarity ordering.

User User Case 1: Visual search can be effective for visual recommendation. For example, at an online shopping website, a user searches for products through keyword searching or browsing. He or she might find something interesting—a bag, a pair of shoes, or a dress. The user then might want to see more items visually similar to this one.

User Case User Case 2: Integrating Visual Search into smartphone apps lets users take a photo of a product from a magazine, a physical product in-store or an image from the Internet and find visually relevant products at your site.
