LONDON, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Image searching on image libraries, art collections and stock photography agencies can be a pain for most users, but in the age of "Big Data" and "Machine Learning", using multiple computer algorithms to enhance the user experience has now become a reality and doesn't necessarily have to cost companies the price of a rocket scientist. Fotolytics services range from entry-level API products to bespoke consultancy projects serving Fortune 500 companies like Macmillan Publishing.

Fotolytics, a London-based company, is looking forward to meeting image libraries at the CEPIC Congress to help them enhance their image search, but more importantly, improve sales and retention. What's more, integration is easy for developers and can be achieved with just one line of code on a website.  Case studies from Amazon, Netflix and Apple and RecSys' own experience has seen user conversions increase between 5-35% depending on product and industry.

Nick Tsinonis, CEO, who'll be exhibiting at the CEPIC Congress May 15th-18th, believes that the next stage of image library search innovation will come from understanding  "taste" of the user and thus personalising the experience for the customer based on a mixture of client needs but also taking into account key business objectives.
