Image recognition is a technology that allows the computer to input visual images and receive information. This new technology is being used in a variety of ways. Law enforcement is using it for social media and other image searches. Customers are using it to find out about products they like in the real world. Anyone can search an image they have and find any new or similar images on the internet.
Tech companies are finding ways to take this technology to another level. Can you image a car that processes real world images so the blind can safely drive themselves? We already have cars that park themselves, so it is a possibility. Large animal detection or collision detection are other features in the works that could help people minimize crashes.
Image recognition software is already revolutionizing the way people do business. Customers no longer have to wonder about the products they want. They do not have to type in words into a search bar, but they can search images to find the product they want. They can find if their image is on websites on the internet. Image recognition software is keeping up with our visual world.
