blackbee’s latest AI research project in cooperation with Leipzig University
The miracle of nature: the human eye
Seeing is one of the most complex human abilities. Our eyes receive more than ten million pieces of information per second and process them directly. Our visual organ recognises and understands the most different forms, colours, dimensions and contexts. This allows us to quickly decide, for example, whether the same product is displayed on two images.
Product Image Matching: blackbee’s newest research project in the field of Artificial Intelligence is implemented together with the University of Leipzig
Product Image Matching – image-based matching of product data
As part of the “VIP” (Visual Product Matching) research project, we are working with the University of Leipzig to teach artificial intelligence the great ability of the human eye. Our vision is an AI that processes visual information from images and identifies products.
We want to develop strong algorithms that compensate the limitations of text-based matching by incorporating image information and thus further strengthen blackbee’s accuracy.
The visual product search will be the new standard in eCommerce
Therefore, we are developing an image recognition system that pre-processes product data with images and compares them using various methods. The new form of image recognition then makes it possible to analyse and assign the entire product range of our customers on the basis of product image characteristics.
Would you like more information on image-based matching of product data? Then contact us now – we are looking forward hearing from you.
Funding of the Free State of Saxony
For the technical development of our AI-based software blackbee we received in September 2019 a six-digit funding of the Sächsischen Aufbaubank(SAB). The SAB funding is scheduled for the years 2020-2022.
