SHOPPING ON eBAY JUST GOT EASIER

eBay is introducing two new features for its mobile apps that use image matching to help customers search for products they might not be able to describe. The Image Search feature lets users shop by uploading a photo onto the app’s search bar. The Find It On eBay feature allows shoppers on any social media platform or website to share an image they like with eBay, which will then spit out listings matching the product. Both features are due this fall. eBay says at the time of launch, Image Search will be supported on both Android and iOS, while Find It On eBay will only be for Android devices in the initial stages.

eBay is at a technological advantage due to the rich set of user-generated images and item data we’ve accumulated through the years. By applying machine learning technology, eBay can deliver a fast and reliable shopping experience backed by one of the world’s largest commerce data sets. eBay says it has a catalog of around 1.1 billion items listed at any given time, and will leverage the latest advances in AI, including computer vision and deep learning, to enable the new features. eBay uses a deep learning model to process the images, the output of the model gives eBay a representation of the image that they can use to compare to the images of the live listings on eBay. Then eBay ranks the items based on visual similarity and use a open-source platform to quickly bring these results to you.

The move makes a lot of sense for eBay as image-based searching becomes more and more prevalent in today’s world. Will eBay live up to expectations?
