There has been a lot of news going around about Slyce lately. Slyce is one of the leading companies that deals in image recognition.
Now some of you might be wondering why visual search is such a big deal. Some of you might also be wondering what is so wrong with sticking with the traditional ways of looking something up.
Who better to answer these questions than the company itself. We recently sat down with a representative from Slyce. We wanted to find out for ourselves why this is such a big deal. We also wanted to find out why so many people are abandoning the old way of searching for something, in favor of using someone like Slyce.
Below you will find a small excerpt from our brief conversation with Slyce.
“We feel we are at the forefront of a new way of thinking. Traditionally, most people just use Google. They basically take what they get, even if the results are not 100% accurate. Taking what you can get has become a way of thinking for a lot of people. It’s also what is causing some of these people to just abandon their searches completely. This does not bode well for business” – http://slyce.it.
“If you build it, they will come. It might be the trademark for “Field of Dreams”, but it
works for us too. If you want people to stay connected, you have to give them a reason. Which is where image recognition comes into play.
More people these days are connected through an image. If a person can’t find the product or image they are looking for, they will walk away. This also means you lose a sale. It all works hand-in-hand. If our clients are getting the image results they want right away, it means they will come back and continue to do business”.

“In a way, yes. With traditional searches, a customer will just keep searching and searching. This takes up a lot of time. It also puts out a lot of frustration with people. When they finally do get what they are looking for, they still feel that frustration over the time frame of the search. This basically puts a damper on things.
It clouds the judgement and opinions over the company, opinions that sometimes may not be warranted. We take all of that guess work out of the game. We present a solution to the problem right away, instead of taking the long way around it. Customers tend to respond more positively to this”.
