Finding images on a shared drive, website or intranet is a pain point for most employees or customers even today. Most intranet or website/ecommerce search engines still rely on the meta data that comes with the images to find them. Finding images by attributes like colors, patterns and their similarity is still very much at its infancy for most companies including online retailers. SearchBlox offers a viable solution for finding images by using other another image without relying on any meta data or tags. Images that need to be found through this method have to be processed and stored for this “similarity search”. Enriching the images with meta tags helps to narrow down the choices if faceting them is an option. These images can be setup to be displayed on the web or mobile browsers allowing users to instantly access them without having to type in anything and simply selecting an existing image that looks close to what is being found.
