Advanced Visual Search Interface Demo
This is a fully functional visual search application that uses the eVe 3 Professional toolkit. It searches from a database of over 1000 uncategorized images selected from a diverse set of sources. The demo is called "Advanced" because it offers a sophisticated interface that lets the user have refined control over how a visual search is performed.
This interface is for the advanced user who understands how object-based visual search works. Using this interface, you can achieve impressively accurate visual search results. It is highly recommended that you begin with the tutorial when the demo launches. Also review the pages on "the art & science to obtaining good visual search results".
