  • Publication number: 20210216596
    Abstract: A method by which degraded images are included in an image search result set is depicted. The method employs a convolutional neural net to analyze and compare a base sample image against all publicly hosted images available on the internet. Well-known AI libraries, such as ResNet 50 are used due to their superior exposure to prevalent images found on the internet. The first and fourth layers as derived by the CNN are reserved as the feature set of the image(s), which are then used for classification and prediction of objects of the image(s). These feature are stored in an ANN-Index to facilitate execution of Euclidean distance calculations and cosign similarity to produce similar images based on features.
