Image Recognition: What It Is, and How it Affects You

Image recognition is a visual search engine technology that you maybe have heard of, but you most likely have yet to use in your day to day life. If you are unaware of what “Image Recognition” technology is, then let’s start with that.

Image recognition is a technology that identifies different types of images, specifically, it is used to identify objects, logos, places, people, etc. Image recognition can and has been used to do a reverse search of an item. For example, it has been used to sort objects, such as produce in grocery stores. Also, it can be used to initiate a search of the subject image.The idea of being able to snap an image of an item you like while walking down the street, then being able to search where you can buy it, or find out what it is, seems unrealistic. However, it is not, the future is here.

Image recognition technology has multiple types of objects that are required to be identifiable in order for you, the user, to fully benefit. Items can be categorized as a code (i.e. barcode or QR code). If an item/picture does not have a code then it can be a picture (i.e. billboard or printed material). All, other objects are considered real world images or a 3D image of a physical item of interest.

Those three categories of image recognition must be met for a successful company in the image recognition industry, and Slyce has built the best Image Recognition technology in the market. Using the Slyce technology, a user can snap a picture of an object, then Slyce determines the category of the object (Code, Picture, or 3D Real World Image). The image data is fully recognized and analyzed, then Slyce provides the user results within 15 seconds.

Do not worry about waiting for the future, because it is here, with Slyce. The leader of Image Recognition.
