How Visual Search Works?

Imagga enables companies to implement image-based search capability into their software systems and applications. The technology is based on deep learning and extraction of visual and semantic features during categorization that are used as matching criteria during the search. After extracting metadata from the image, it digs through the index of images and retrieves the best results based on semantics, color, category or functional similarity. For highest accuracy results retrieval, the features relevant for the image database can be custom defined.

The visual search technology represents an exciting opportunity for fashion, home décor and furniture online retailers to improve product discovery and ease barriers to purchase. Imagga visual similarity search technology can be applied to any visual dataset regardless of the industry or the use case.
