Search by image instead of plain text – Reverse Search Engines
How many of us know about the fact that,
“We can search by images as well, instead of giving plain text as a query string“
How many of us know that,
“There are reverse image search engines , which searches through the digital libraries for the related images“
One might think in what situation I might need these reverse image search engines. Imagine yourself in a situation, where you have a copyright for a photograph and you need to catch sites, which uses your picture illegally.
The technique has its history way back in 1992, as Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR).
The most popular reverse search engine Tine Eye , has its history as the first and foremost one to come up with this concept.
