Text & Image Searching#
CLIP-as-service enables us to encode text and images into a common space. This is a powerful tool for many applications, such as cross-modality search.
CLIP search is a new feature provided by CLIP-as-service. It enables us to search for images based on text/image. It calculates the similarity score based on the embeddings of the text and image. The higher the score, the more similar they are.
This demo demonstrates the text-to-image and image-to-image searching in CLIP search. You can type text query or upload the local image as a query, and it will return the top 10 similar images for you.
In this demo, we use
Open-Image-Dataset dataset (consist of 125,346 images) to demonstrate Text & Image retrieval.
