IDS SuggestionEngine™ – Artificial Intelligence driven Visual Search

Machine Learning will utterly change the way in which people find visual content. IDS has created IDS SuggestionEngine™, a platform which incorporates IDS’s Visual Search.

Unlike other ‘Search by image’  engines, the IDS SuggestionEngine™ returns search results that are creative, offering options that are a blend of the look and feel of the original image. A user can search by colour, creative, or strict elements – and sort the results by visual complexity.  IDS’s technologies let designers and artists find exactly what they need in seconds, simply by uploading an image. Simple to implement using our comprehensive API, you can be up and running within a few days.

Beyond words.


Award-winning London design studio, PixelFlakes approached IDS to overhaul their way of working. We built a centralised, cloud-based visual content database – that now fully utilises their whole photography database, and simplifies the organisation of assets within it.

PixelFlakes has totally changed the way it works due to a seemingly simple innovation. The result is, says Marvin Nooitgedacht, managing director of PixelFlakes, “beyond words”. Quite literally, when you think about it. Demo
