Where & How to Find it?! use a PHOTO

 

Why type in vague search terms and scroll through reams of results when you can snap a simple photo and immediately find exactly what you’re looking for? That’s the premise behind the rise of computer vision search smarts, which are becoming a more common fixture in the online landscape.

Last March, for example, Pinterest launched a new feature called Lens that lets you use a photo of a real-world item to find related themes and pins, or even recipes based on food you see in the wild. The company recently revealed that it now garners 600 million visual searches each month. Ecommerce giant eBay is also now using computer vision search tools to help shoppers find items using photos.

imagine! This could be APPLIED TO MANY ITEMS! You own an old Eichler mid-century modern home, you need a pipe do0-dad, you don’t know what it is called much less where to find one. Before your garage floods…. what if you could input a picture and find the part?  Same goes for Vintage Airstreams or sportscars, you need a part and it cannot be found, and … you don’t really know when it was last manufactured…. import a picture to find it? That would be soooo gooood!!
