Visual product matching – the next level in monitoring the competition

During her lecture Dr. Hanna Köpcke talked about the joint project “VIP – Visual Product Matching” in collaboration with the University of Leipzig. Interested workshop participants learned what progress Webdata Solutions has already made in implementing automated image recognition in product matching.

Through the analysis of product images, it will be possible in the future to also include products in the market analysis for which textual comparison points are not given or not reliable enough. Thus, in addition to text-based matching, the visual component will herald a new era in market analysis.

We thank the organization team for sharing their exciting and inspiring ideas!
