About the

eVe™ (eVision Visual engine) is an advanced Visual Search engine that includes analysis, storage, indexing, and search/retrieval of images and video. Unlike a classical keyword-based search, eVision software retrieves images by analyzing their perceptual content. Images do not need to be viewed, interpreted, or keyworded by humans.

Automatic SegmentationeVe breaks new ground in Visual Search by bringing automatic segmentation to the commercial world. Segmentation is the process by which an image is divided into regions, which correspond approximately to objects or parts of objects in an image. Once these object regions are identified, features such as color, texture and shape are extracted. Similarity comparisons are then made to other objects in other images.

To use an implementation of eVe, you can either give eVe a sample query image, select an image from the Visual Vocabulary selection, or enter a keyword and then "Zero In" your search to find additional pictures based on visual similarity. These results are ranked according to relevance, and can be further refined.
