If you own a mobile gadget, you may be preparing for an app or a new technology enter the device. If you are looking down that road, you may be imagining the day when you can do anything with the press of a button. You may be anticipating a technology that will without fail make your life a breeze, be it traveling to a new destination or doing your routine chore. Your needs, wants, taste and decisions are handled based on your previous likings. The role of visual search technology is an incredible one in this arena, not to mention its reliability and price.
Visual Search Technology is at the forefront whether you want to locate your destination or research a product. This new tool utilizes the images from apps and links the product in the real world. In other words, rather than describing the product that you are about to buy, explore or study through words and phrases, simply take a picture and convey the message. Through this technology, you will be able to accurately access the content that facilitates e-commerce and categorization.
Begin with uploading pictures into your smartphone. You are at home or in the middle of a desert. The uploading process may have started only a few seconds ago or you have the picture stored in the system. The source can be anywhere from laptop, cell phone to flyer and billboard. The app will then guide the user through a series of actions such as posting on social network, transferring to a retail store website, buying a product or selling online. The images can be shared, pixel by pixel and detail by detail to the end user. This technology uses image recognition to look for similar content in the database thereby matching the photo with the content. The app can be a native photo app or any specific app meant for the purpose. In addition, the technology has the ability to match the picture without the need for bar code scan.
