The Merger of Visual Search and AI for Online Retailers

Home | Apps | The Merger of Visual Search and AI for Online Retailers

A groundbreaking experiment is happening between deep learning AI jsoftware and of all things…progressing the ability to search and shop online with visual recognition software. Deep learning is that branch of science where computers learn to process high level abstract ideas with the help of a lot of complex algorithms (a sequence of instructions). Pinterest, first of all is using a new visual search tool that allows its users to draw a box around an image and perform a retail based search of similar or exact match products across the internet. Shoes.com is also testing a technology that uses a “visual filter” to drill down from an initial selection of boots, to eventually present the exact style and color boot that the shopper was looking for. This takes that drop-down text box out of the equation, and everything is done visually.

This technology is not new since SlyceIt, a company that specializes in the development of visual search engine platforms for e-retailer and the end user has been successfully matching consumer visual search to billions of online products. Slyce Co-Founder, Cameron Chell, a serial entrepreneur who established one of the first cloud computing companies in the 1990’s is not new to innovative thinking. Their visual search technology is as simple as a consumer taking a snap of a barcode, a 2D image or a real life snapshot of a product; the image is processed and analyzed and returns a similar or exact match from the retailer’s product line.

Shoes.com CEO Roger Hardy is already singing praises as he definitely feels that the visual filter has already increased sales. Plans are to expand its use from its line of boots to more product lines. As for Pinterest, Kevin Jing, head of its visual search department, admits that there is room for improvement but the technology is already changing the way people shop online, and will continue in the future. Major retailers using the Slyce visual search platform include Home Depot, Neimann Marcus and JCPenney.

Consumers are always looking for ways to make their lives easier and simplier, and Slyce has found a way to do just that. Especially for the fashion apparel consumer, the ability to take an image of an entire outfit and have the option to buy the complete look, is a dream come true. In the past, the best a fashionista could do was to approximate the look. Now she or he can have the entire outfit, from head to toe. This is a dream for the fashion savvy.
