Development of innovative technology and implementation of a prototype of a system analyzing an image captured digitally using a smartphone

The goal of this project is to conduct research on image recognition technology with a system that analyzes the image of the object captured digitally using a smartphone at Snowdog Sp. z o.o. (LLC). The developed technology will enable rapid product recommendations similar to the photographed item to the user, found in existing databases/websites. For practical reasons, the analysis system should:

  1. I. Offer recognition accuracy high enough to meet the expectations of the average user,
  2. II. Operate quickly enough to provide adequate comfort of use (response time in the order of one second),
  3. III. Implement a critical part of the system's functionality on the user's phone (i.e. whenever possible, avoid sending the image to other services/systems).

The implementation of such a project will provide Snowdog Sp. z o.o. (LLC) a significant competitive advantage, enabling the enterprise to provide their business clients (e.g. owners of online portals offering selected product categories) with unique solutions on a global scale. In turn, for the end users, the developed solution would provide a very convenient and easy-to-use tool to search for products of interest.

Project goals
