STATE-OF-THE-ART as a service: from paper to api


Published on

Introduction to the Wide Eyes Fashion Visual Search API at Barcelona API Days Mediterranea, the independent conference on APIS, NLP and language technology. Why APIS are the best way to deliver this technology? How can a scientific paper be converted on a deliverable product abstracting most of its complexity?

Wide Eyes has developed a unique image recognition technology and visual search engine for the fashion and eCommerce industry, that goes beyond the limits of the state-of-the-art. This technology allow users, not only discover fashion through images but also index, search, tagg and find images without using a single word. Today, we can truly change the paradigm and claim: “a picture doesn’t worth 1000 words… a picture worth a picture”
