Eyewitness Descriptions Might Not Be Totally Reliable

At crime scenes, witnesses who were viewing the exact same event, might render vastly different descriptions and interpretations. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to rely simply on what we see “right-in-front-of-our-eyes” for a variety of reasons. Thankfully, there might be a new image recognition software that can be used to search for items automatically.

“Describing Things People Or Events Can Be Challenging”

Simply because you view a dress, jacket or shoe does not mean that you can accurately describe it to others. You might really like the look, but simply have problems due to eyesight, memory, perspective or explanatory aptitude. Academicians have discovered that eyewitness testimony is not always the most reliable.

People with poor vision might not be able to determine colors, shapes and sizes in much detail. Bad memory could leave you forgetting a very important detail. And some people are simply not very good at describing things.

“Slyce Snapshot Software Sells”

Italian software developers at Slyce have created an image recognition technology that can be used by both mobile and desktop users. Old images can be enhanced using this technology. New images can be compared to others to find matches.

Besides law enforcement applications, regular consumers can use this “deep learning” technology to compare products or faces with online examples. At a dinner party, you can take a picture of a beautiful dress and use the Slyce technology to search online for its match.

The MIT Technology Review investigated this artificial intelligence reporting that “Pinterest” and “Shoes.com” were conducting real life testing to determine the viability of the technology. Sharing photographs can be a great way to connect. Social media can use Slyce to compare celebrities or even look for distinctive features in babies.

“A Camera In Every Hand”

Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook have made it easy to share our lives in real-time. Just click on a button, snap a picture and send. Now the Slyce technology takes this to the next level. Individuals can actually search and shop using images, what a nice thought.
