Ebay has launched Image Search technology in the UK, allowing buyers to search for items by entering the photos of their desired products.
Buyers using the online retail platform can now track 1.1 billion of this website by using their smartphone camera and Ebay artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.
Increased use of technology by platform users will improve search tools, providing more accurate filtering and richer results for images provided.
“Inspiring shopping moments can happen anytime, whether you’re walking down the street or browsing your social media,” said Ebay UK vice president Rob Hattrell.
“At Ebay, we focus on creating a new complementary technology that helps our millions of customers.
“Whether it’s helping buyers easily find the products they like at the best value for money, or highlighting relevant vendor inventory on the platform in a new and engaging way .
“Ebay image search allows Internet users to buy and sell on eBay using any image or photo that inspires them.”
