Visual Search Like a Slyce of Cake

 

For years, humans have been gathering knowledge; sorting and storing for later use. Libraries full of books, documentaries of scientific breakthroughs, and now, the internet. You can literally search for, and find, anything you can think of thanks to the World Wide Web. You can share anything for millions of others to view at their own leisure, and can discover many works of art, jobs, friends, and many desirable items to buy.
However, as our technology advances, things do get muddled. We see things, we have images of what we like, and we just can’t find them no matter what we type into the search bar. All we end up with is results pertaining to everything BUT what we are looking for. This can become especially frustrating for those looking for the perfect prom dress that they saw on social media, or for a cute top their friend has but can’t remember the brand name. If only humans could take images from their minds and input them into the search bar! Sadly, while we can’t do that, there is technology that allows us to do something very strongly similar.
Image recognition technology has been developing over the past few years. Some may think of it as what is used by authorities to help identify criminals by their facial structure, but there is much more that can be done with this technology. Image recognition is now also being used by businesses to help their consumers find information on various products, stores, and brands. Anything can be found, even if the picture is fresh from your own camera.
One such company, Slyce, specializes in visual search. They partner with various companies, working to help consumers find products easier with the simple technology of their camera and the power of the internet. Users can take a picture of a product found out and about, and the app will find the product’s information, including an option to buy said product from it’s respective company. Slyce will even identify everything from bar codes to coupons, as well as pictures taken from the world around the user. Slyce utilizes the technology that many recognition software’s use, and compiles it all into a massively helpful package for use world wide.
