Fotolytics at CEPIC 2012: Image Discovery for Picture Libraries Makes Business Sense
LONDON, May 15, 2012/PRNewswire/ --
Image searching on image libraries, art collections and stock photography agencies can
be a pain for most users, but in the age of "Big Data" and "Machine Learning", using
multiple computer algorithms to enhance the user experience has now become a reality and
doesn't necessarily have to cost companies the price of a rocket scientist. Fotolytics
services range from entry-level API products to bespoke consultancy projects serving
Fortune 500 companies like Macmillan Publishing.
Fotolytics [http://fotolytics.com ], a London-based company, is looking forward to
meeting image libraries at the CEPIC Congress to help them enhance their image search, but
more importantly, improve sales and retention. What's more, integration is easy for
developers and can be achieved with just one line of code on a website. Case studies from
Amazon, Netflix and Apple and RecSys' own experience has seen user conversions increase
between 5-35% depending on product and industry.

from understanding "taste" of the user and thus personalising the experience for the
customer based on a mixture of client needs but also taking into account key business
