  5. 5. © 2016 Virtual World Computing | Confidential – Do Not Distribute EXAMPLE “I saw a co-worker wearing an adorable shoe but I felt uncomfortable asking her what the brand was. I was only able to take an sly picture during a meeting. This photo is all I have… I want these shoes. How do I find them?”

  10. 10. © 2016 Virtual World Computing | Confidential – Do Not Distribute • Google currently does not have the technology to find a match from a partial scan/image • The image on the right is the SERP (Search Engine Results Page) when you search for that image in Google. • These results show other shoes but would take countless hours to sift through. WHAT ABOUT GOOGLE?

Faster and more accurate than pixel technology • More accurate data because search space is more highly populated then pixel technology • Signature approach 180 degrees in some cases. • Allows for better similarity search beyond video, audio, communications and unstructured text using binary data representation.
