The Rise of the Visual Search Engine

Search engines are plentiful, and every search provider is doing their best to provide people the most convenient way to search for anything they want. With the advent of smartphone cameras, visual and image searching has been developing by leaps and bounds. People want to know what they’re looking at, and they want to know how to get it. Visual searches are great for people want to compare products at stores or look up details about a historical monument.

Currently, there are two ways to search for an image, either by uploading an old image or by taking a picture of it. When searching with a picture, image search engines only find what’s visually similar. This means the result could have the same shape and color, but could be a completely different object. Another method engines use to search a visual detail are the metatags attached to the image. Every picture has metatags in them that detail a keyword, location or even a name. Although, this tends to be lackluster as well.

The other method, taking a picture, has improved visual search technology within the past few years. Since pictures taken with phones are brand new, they have no prior image on the internet nor do they have the appropriate metatags. So instead, smartphones upload the image to a central database where it’s scrutinized until it comes close to a match, similar to the other method. This involves matching the new picture with numerous pictures already on the net, and thus results may vary.

With this growing technology, visual search is improving everyday to be more helpful to people. Slyce, a company that’s spearheading the technology, is an example of that. Slyce aims to develop advanced image recognition technology, so that consumers are able to find what they want. Technology is all about convenience, and Slyce brings that convenience to everyone. Slyce improves the technology by having the image stream to the database where it’s recognized multiple times to provide better accuracy.

With all that in mind, visual searching is growing at an alarming rate, and people will benefit the most from it. Download some apps onto your smartphone to see how visual search can help you.

Though Sam Tabar has made his mark in the business and legal world as a savvy capital strategist, his most recent ventures have given him the guise of a humanitarian philanthropist. In 2014, Tabar invested in THINX, a women’s products company, whose goal is to send cloth sanitary pads to women in developing African nations following each pair of underwear sold.

THINX began their trajectory by making use of Kickstarter, and managed to generate over 50000 dollars in donations. Tabar, hearing word o the company via mutual friends of THINX owners, decided to invest personally into the company. He has admitted that he was not seeking out a new venture at the time, but that the company’s ideals and policies were so appealing that he could not resist lending a hand.

Shortly thereafter, Tabar moved into the corporate domain, joining the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slater, Maegher & Flom LLP as an associate. He spent the majority of his time there consulting on hedge funds and personal investment strategies. He left the firm in 2004, and began working as a Managing Director at Sparx Group, and was tasked with developing marketing strategies for the company to net high profile clients. Tabar stayed at Sparx until 2011, when he elected to join the Bank of America Merrill Lynch as Director and Head of Capital Strategy in the Oceania and Asia sector. Tabar continued to oversee fiscal policies and strategies of the company, as he had done in his previous jobs, while amassing a significant increase in investing clients for the bank. Tabar opted to leave the financial world, and return to the legal one in 2013, when he took a position as senior associate at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP in New York City. He was yet again tasked with managing and advising on hedge funds.

 Tabar has continued to prove his worth no matter which sector or company he has been a part of. Additionally, his recent investment in THINX suggests that he may continue to pursue his humanitarian efforts, and tailor his future plans to assisting to finance projects that focus on helping those in need.

Chinese Father and Son Reunited After 24 years

Sun Bin’s parents have spent the last 24 years wondering about their son. Was he okay? Is he happy, healthy, still alive? That’s because in 1991 4 year old Sun Bin was abducted from a vegetable market in his home town of Sichuan province. His parents had no idea that he was taken and sold to a family thousands of miles way in the Jiangsu province. According to the story on CNN.com it is common that young boys are abducted and sold in China since boys are prized and can be sold for more money.

Sun Bin and his father were reunited at a Chengdu police station earlier this week after a DNA test proved to be a match. Unfortunately Sun Bin’s mother passed away in 2011 but she never forgot him. The elder Sun said she died saying his name and wished for him to be found.

How heartbreaking. Losing your child for so long, not knowing what happened. It is a shame that Sun Bin’s mother did not live to see her son return. I cannot imagine what other parents in China must feel like losing their children to traffickers. Rod Rohrich is happy to see this family reunite, he mentions this in this article on plasticsurgery.org
