There are approximately 2 billion smartphones in use today (source) all powered with inbuilt and robust cameras. Every single day, people upload more than 350 million photos on Facebook and 70 million photos and videos on Instagram (source).Moreover, the rise of e-commerce businesses have digitized billions of products, turning them into online visual representations.
The web is becoming increasingly visual. And each image is worth more than a thousand words.
It has therefore become tremendously important to be able to make sense of the booming visual web. People should be able to search by using uploaded images instead of the thousand words that describe them. Businesses should be able to recognise the content in images and videos for easier identification, sorting and tagging.
"The only available methods to surface and categorize photos are beyond basic; we need something intuitive and streamlined to navigate this new visual web."
While visuals are the only communication vehicle understood by people from all across the world regardless of their language, we need tools such as computers to be able to see and understand visuals too in order to help us categorize, search and browse through the vast amount of data locked in all the pixels out there.
At ViSenze, we care about simplifying the search process by removing the need to guess (inefficiently) at keywords. We care about unlocking the precious information found in visual content and simplifying the way to find it when needed. We care about making it possible to recognize and search through billions of images and videos without taking longer than the blink of an eye.
Humans have became one of the most powerful species on earth because we were able to complement our natural capabilities with the use of tools and collective intelligence. And ViSenze is providing visual technology in the form of easy-to-use tools that tap into both collective intelligence and machine intelligence.
At ViSenze, we simplify the visual web driven by the vision of a smarter planet where people are more and more effective.
