Visual search, AKA search by image, is a new way of searching for information using an image or part of an image as the query. Similar to text search, which connects keyword queries to knowledge on the web, the ultimate goal of visual search is to connect camera captured data or images to web knowledge. Bing has been continuously improving its visual search feature, which is now available on Bing desktop, mobile, and apps, as well as Edge browser. It can be used not only for searching for similar images but also for task completion, such as looking for similar products while shopping. Bing image search now also features image annotation and object detection, to further improve the user experience. This demo will show these techniques and the scenarios for which the techniques were developed.
