Design meets artificial intelligence to create new visual search engine


Novel methods of searching the nation's gallery, library and museum collections could soon be revolutionized by a visual search platform designed in collaboration with Northumbria University. As the sector worldwide moves towards presenting collections online, the Deep Discoveries project was launched to explore ways of creating a computer vision search platform that can identify and match images across digitized collections on a national scale. The expertise of Dr. Jo Briggs and Associate Professor Jamie Steane, from Northumbria School of Design, were enlisted to help deliver the collaboration between The National Archives, the University of Surrey and the V&A Museum. Rather than typing a keyword into an empty search box, visual search uses a query image and computer vision artificial intelligence (AI), to match similar images from across digitized collections based on properties such as color, pattern and shape. The Northumbria design team--made up of Jo, Jamie and talented graduate Andy Cain--joined the project at a later stage to help with information sharing and developing the user experience.

Four Ways AI, VR & AR Can Enhance Your Marketing


When you sit back and think about the changes that have been made in technology over the past few years, it is quite amazing. It was not that long ago that home phones were more common than mobile phones. However, now almost everyone has a mobile phone and many people do not have a landline. The same can be said for newer technologies such as Google Nest Audio or Amazon Alexa. Households that own a smart speaker state that using it has become an essential part of their day.

Snapchat's Scan feature can identify dogs, plants, clothes, and more


Snapchat's camera has to date mostly been associated with sending disappearing messages and goofy AR effects, like a virtual dancing hot dog. But what if it did things for you, like suggest ways to make your videos look and sound better? Or show you a similar shirt based on the one you're looking at? Starting Thursday, a feature called Scan is being upgraded and placed front and center in the app's camera, letting it identify a range of things in the real world, like clothes or dog breeds. Scan's prominent placement in Snapchat means that the company is slowly becoming not just a messaging app, but a visual search engine.

11 ways to open Command Prompt in Windows


The Command Prompt app has been around since December 1987, providing Windows users with a command-line interface from which to execute operating systems tasks, many of which are very useful. Due to its popularity, Microsoft has made the app easily accessible on Windows 10, in more ways than one. Here are 11 ways to open Command Prompt. You can search for any app using the Windows search bar, and the Command Prompt is no exception. You can also open Command Prompt from the Start menu.

How Does Google Use Artificial Intelligence (AI)?


Every time you search for something in Google, artificial intelligence is working behind the scenes to generate responses to your query. A deep learning system called RankBrain has changed the way the search engine functions. In many cases, RankBrain handles search queries better than traditional algorithmic rules that were hand-coded by human engineers, and Google realized a long time ago that AI is the future of their search platform. AI will try to understand exactly what we are searching for and then deliver personalized results to us, based on what it knows about us. You may not realize it, but AI is already deeply integrated into many of the Google products you are using today.

How AI is Transforming SEO


AI and Machine Learning are transforming the world around us, and nowhere is it more evident and relatable than in the much-contested world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Google's search engine ranking algorithm, for example, has been fluidly evolving for years now. In the latter parts of 2015, Google introduced an AI-based search query ranking algorithm named "RankBrain". In the pre RankBrain era, Google utilised relatively basic algorithms to determine which results to prioritize for a given user search query, including basic keyword matching and backlinks, or site authority. In the post RankBrain era, each user query now goes through an interpretation model that can apply a whole myriad of signals, like the user's location, personalisation and previous browsing history, device and the words of the query, to name a few, to determine the searcher's true intent.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, as opposed to the natural intelligence displayed by humans or animals. Leading AI textbooks define the field as the study of "intelligent agents": any system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of achieving its goals. Some popular accounts use the term "artificial intelligence" to describe machines that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as "learning" and "problem solving". AI applications include advanced web search engines, recommendation systems (used by YouTube, Amazon and Netflix), understanding human speech (such as Siri or Alexa), self-driving cars (e.g. Tesla), and competing at the highest level in strategic game systems (such as chess and Go), As machines become increasingly capable, tasks considered to require "intelligence" are often removed from the definition of AI, a phenomenon known as the AI effect.

Why You Should Develop AI-Powered Visual Search Solution?


Traditional text-based keyword searches are inefficient for 74% of customers when finding the right products online. However, much of our current search behavior is based on an erroneous assumption. We sometimes forget that Google Images accounts for 22.6% of all searches -- where traditional methods of searching were not the best fit. But we understand what you're thinking. The AI image search engine generates very few sessions if any at all.
