The eVe Software Developers Kit (SDK) is a programming toolkit for building image analysis and visual search applications for the recognition and retrieval of images. The components include Java class libraries, sample programs with source code, sample images, and reference documentation.
Developers and software engineers can use eVe as a building block for developing a visual search applicationit is not an end-user application in itself. eVe provides an intelligent infrastructure to acquire, process, and manage visual assets while assisting the development of natural and intuitive user interfaces that perform searches in the same way that people think.
Some example applications using eVe are:
Online shopping. Locating a specific product within an e-Commerce site can sometimes be a difficult task. For example, to locate a particular type of shirt on a clothing site, a user must first specify the type, purpose, color, and material of that shirt using text-based prompts and menu listings. After clicking through and choosing options from these numerous prompts and menus, the user is then presented with a number of unsorted shirt images from which to choose. Utilizing eVes Visual Search technology, you can enable a user to find the desired shirt using a more visually intuitive interface that requires fewer clicks and produces faster results.
Medical imaging. Medical imaging is critical to patient diagnosis and care across a broad range of health care procedures and disease states. For example, to locate radiology images from different patients who share common symptoms is difficult, if not impossible. Utilizing eVes Visual Search technology, you can enable a medical professional to quickly find visually similar radiology images from different patients to help with diagnosis.
Stock photograph collections (for example, for fashion designers or architects). Using eVe, you can enable:
fashion designers to quickly locate similar clothing designs, color usage, etc.
architects to locate matching structures, blueprints, schematics, etc.
