Neural Networks and Image Search
It’s hard to imagine an industry that relies on images more than the fashion industry. Almost every process, from manufacturing to marketing, revolves around images. This chapter discusses methods for classifying images, developments in neural networks that have been improving these methods, and the basics of how neural networks work. The idea of classifying images was mentioned in Chapter 3. It might not sound like a futuristic or exciting concept, but it is foundational for machines to answer the question, “What is this?” when working with an image.
