Technologies like image recognition have always been used at an enterprise level. take for instance Google, they use image recognition to assist with the image search engine algorithm. Facebook uses image recognition to determine whether you are looking at a face or body. YouTube uses image recognition to make sure that you are not posting videos with graphic images. Nowadays, image recognition is being used in more practical, user friendly ways, consumer controlled applications, including creating easier and more intuitive ways to shop online.
Recently, Google, Inc. and Stanford University discovered a way to recognize complex images with multiple objects using AI.
The visual search technology works using networks based on the brain. This network analyzes patterns and similarities in data. Essentially, it scans through websites, like Google, WordPress and even your own site to analyze any text and commentary surrounding the image, as well as the image itself. By doing this, a massive database develops that constantly cross-references, adds and analyzes data to provide a very accurate image recognition software that can analyze very complex shapes and images. This never before seen combination of artificial intelligence and image recognition creates excellent opportunities for commercial utilization.
Slyce is the spice of life
Although Slyce leverages they’re own proprietary artificial intelligence theories using image recognition, what makes it special is that it is already starting to apply practical application of this technology in a retail environment. When a shopper sees something that he wants to investigate and know more about, he can just scan it and get droves of data, all from a simple image.
With Slyce’s snap-to-buy algorithm, consumers can take images, find the item they are looking for and purchase the item, all in one window, with one simple tap.
Image recognition software suites, like Slyce are completely changing the way that we browse the Internet. Can you imagine how different the world will be when people use Slyce as frequently as Facebook, Instagram or twitter? We’d literally be just one step away from flying cars.
