Due to the overwhelming amount of choices available in e-commerce today, traditional online search methods are becoming increasingly inefficient for consumers who are unsure of what they’re looking for – especially when shopping in highly visual categories, whether it’s finding the perfect taco, or just the right couch to complete your living room.

The Solution? A new visual approach to shopping designed to help consumers better figure out what they want to buy. Ask Sydney™ allows consumers to steer the search and cut through the noise with a critique-based recommendation system that relies on user preferences and responses to sequential images…ultimately matching users to the most relevant real-time recommendations so they can shop confidently and be satisfied with their purchases!

This patented technology (2 issued US and 6 pending WW) and software are in use today at FoodFaves.com where you can download the FoodFaves App and test the visual food search engine.  The complete technology package is available for license or sale.
