Visual Search: Finding What You Need is a Snap

Have you ever experienced the frustration of knowing what something looks like but having no idea what it’s called? Maybe you’re trying to find that green and white toy for your cousin, but all you have is a photo. Perhaps you’ve also experienced a case where you have a product you love, but the label is worn off and you don’t remember what it was called so you’re not sure how to search for it. Visual search engines were created for times like these, and they can help you immensely when you’re trying to find an answer with only an image.

The Development of Visual Search Engines

Visual search engines were created in response to many things. However, retail markets were perhaps one of the most influential powers behind the creation of visual search. If you see an advertisement with a dress you want but it doesn’t tell you how to buy it, you can snap a picture of the ad, upload it into a visual search engine, and get a result. These types of searches have made the world of retail even more lucrative, and visual search has also made shopping a much more enjoyable and efficient experience.

Social Media and Visual Search

Another player in visual search engines is social media, primarily platforms with a visual nature like Pinterest or Instagram. Let’s say you’re browsing on Pinterest and you see a gorgeous sofa you want for your home, but there’s no information on how to buy it. Now you can upload the picture into a visual search engine and you’ll be given a list of places where you can buy that sofa or similar sofas.

Slyce and Product Recognition

Google has an image search, but most people are aware that it’s not exactly perfect. This gap in the market hasn’t gone unnoticed by technology developers like Slyce. Slyce is fast becoming one of the most popular product recognition search engines on the internet, and for good reason. Its specialty is being able to recognize images of products from the store, on models, from pictures taken of advertisements, and other image sources. If you see someone wearing a beautiful pair of boots but you don’t want to ask them where they found them, just take a picture and Slyce will do the rest, returning various results and shopping options.

The future of visual search is unlimited, and only time will tell what kinds of applications developers will make. In the meantime, using product recognition engines like Slyce can help you find the products you need even if you only have a picture.

Thor Halvorssen Adds The Biggest Donors To The Human Rights Foundation

Despite only being seen as a small fish in a very large and expanding ocean of human rights activists operating around the world the Human Rights Foundation headed by Thor Halvorssen has quickly grown to become one of the best known groups in the world. Thor Halvorssen may only work with a group of 12 trusted activists who have a long history of their own in politics or activism on a personal level, but he has led the Human Rights Foundation on a journey that now sees some of the world’s top philanthropists provide funding for the group.

Among those who have recently been providing funding for the HRF are PayPal founder Peter Thiel and Google executive Sergey Brin. The funds raised are used to allow those working with the Human Rights Foundation to create a new and exciting era in activism, including the growth of the Oslo Freedom Forum that has become one of the world’s top destinations for global activists. The major events created by the Human Rights Foundation are accompanied by smaller events that are not publicized to the same extent as the Oslo Freedom Forum where more informal discussions are held between activists and donors from various parts of the world.

Throughout his life and career Thor Halvorssen has been willing to put himself in the firing line alongside those he has worked with over the years. The illegal imprisonment of Halvorssen’s father obviously had a major effect on the activist and led to his decision to lead a demonstration calling for China’s government to create anti slave labor laws that would certify all products were made free from imprisoned people.

Thor Halvorssen believes human rights and freedom of expression should be available to all, including those in countries supposed to be free in many different ways. points out that Halvorssen has been a leader of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which works to cross political divides to make sure students are aware of their individual human rights in the U.S.
