Application ①

Image copyright check

[Client] Publishing industry


  • Check the origin of an image
     Whether the image was taken/modified from another source?
  • Check personality right
    Is there any person in the scene (and thus necessary to get the permission)


  • PicMatch performs similarity search against the images of various source, to detect if the image was taken/modified from another one.
  • PicMatch detects human faces in the images, calculates how much the faces are identifiable, and suggests if the article needs to get an approval.

Application ②

Image similarity search

[Client] Travel media service


  • Some hotels try to register as new ones with different names (to avoid poor reviews, or to increase appearance in search results).


  • The pictures taken at the hotel (by the hotel or by its guests) give some clues.
  • Even though the pictures were taken from different angles and at different time of the day, PicMatch is able to find similarity between the pictures from different registered hotel and tell if they belong to the same place.

Application ③

Product assessment

[Client] Golf club second-hand trading stores


  • The number of second-hand golf club models is large and it is hard for buyers to judge quickly and accurately.
  • Most of the time, the model name & number is not printed on the item, making it hard to identify the product model.


  • We created a recognition smartphone application using the API of PicMatch.
  • The application takes the picture of the golf club, search the picutre in the master database, find the corresponding model and return the information to the buyer.
  • Based on the information returned by the smartphone app, the buyer decides the purchasing price.

Application ④

  • PicMatch then searches the master image database for the product image corresponding to the bounding area to identify the product.
