Description

Providing information using an image recognition technology, the system and method

The present invention relates to a method of providing a plurality of information provider has registered the relevant information in the same image by using the image recognition technique in a mobile environment.

An image recognition technology is being used in several different ways, depending on the areas, one of which it is a technique to find the same image from a plurality of images. In the example, drive the mobile APP (Application) in which the, such as smart phones camera-equipped mobile device, and if a user using a smart phone taken a line labeling of images or items of goods the recorded image is the image is transmitted to the recognition server finds the most similar to the same image or images is a technology that provides the information registered in the image.

However, if you use these techniques to promote product sales, there has been insufficient points. For example, in the case of advertising, the advertiser places an emphasis on product promotion, rather than to specific sites buy anything because they do sell anything sold their products through any mall through offline. In contrast, the case of the dealer and direct sellers of want to connect customers to their product purchase site to buy the products at their retail sites.

Such a case, there are a number of vendors who are developing the same image you want to connect with their buying sites occurs, there is a problem in a way to satisfy all of them do not exist at present.

The present invention is conceived to solve the above problems, the present invention provides a mobile user and the seller of the image registered by his obtaining an image from his mobile terminal, through use of an image recognition technology APP and servers, etc. to purchase the site (internet shopping, etc.) of the product to provide a means to access the user's terminal.

As a technical means for solving the above problems, an aspect of the invention is connected via a mobile terminal and a network, including an image recognition server, a web server, and a DB server, a method providing information using an image recognition technology is configured , transmitting the image pattern extracted from one image value or the acquired image obtained by the mobile terminal to the image recognition server; , At the image recognition server extracts the image pattern value got transfer the images from the mobile terminal, and retrieve the image pattern value similar to the image pattern value previously registered image pattern transfer value directly got; The image recognition server is sending the image code values ​​in the search results via the mobile terminal or directly to the web server; The Web server is sending a promotional code values ​​and find the code value for the shopping, the malls URL information, including registration with the promotional information or shopping malls code value registered in the promotional code values ​​registered in the image code value received by the mobile terminal using image recognition technology, including ways to provide the information provided.

Preferably, the image and the image code values ​​are registered in the DB server in advance, how to register, find a way to register a new image that is not registered in an existing or groups desired image from the registered image they want in the image you can register for more information.

In addition, the group to find a desired image from the registered image, when registering the image in advance, the same corresponding to that registered image keyword also possible to register together with the finding by the keyword search or image retrieval or the to search for similar images by selecting or otherwise may be considered a method for registering an image with the search, or a pre-registered pattern value and equal to the same or error pattern values ​​for the pre-registered image and an image to register only a little image .

Another aspect of the present invention, in the information providing system using the image recognition technology, connected via a mobile terminal and the network, retrieving, and searching for the image code values ​​corresponding to the retrieved similar image similar to an image for the received image recognition server; And as the DB server connected to the image recognition server, DB server that is in order to provide a plurality of information in one image code value, storing a plurality of public and / or shopping related information on the image code values ​​corresponding to the image; the comprising, if the mobile terminal over the image that is desired to obtain service information, is configured to connect to select from among a plurality of PR and / or shopping information for that image.

Effect according to the present invention is as follows.

First, there is an effect that the number of images to be registered on the server decreases significantly. The server associated or to a search in a state in which the resident all image pattern value to random access memory (RAM), being registered a single image rather than both by the number of registering the same image will receive the registration number of the link address in order to increase the search speed to connect information, as well as reduce the amount of data on the server, which will also effect the search speed quickly.

Second, when connected to a plurality of purchasing sites link address to the one in the image consumers can purchase products from purchase site to present a more affordable, than through the bid information to be displayed on the top as a premium link Internet portal, it can provide the high prices can be higher profits.

Hereinafter, a method for achieving the advantage and features of the present invention and will become more apparent upon reference to the embodiments that are described later in detail in conjunction with the accompanying drawings. However, the invention is not limited to the embodiments set forth herein be embodied in many different forms, only, and the present embodiments are to complete the disclosure of the present invention, ordinary skill in the art will to those provided to indicate that the full scope of the invention, the present invention will only be defined by the appended claims.

1 shows an information providing system using an image recognition technique and according to embodiments of the present invention.

Also the information providing system using an image recognition technology. 1 is configured to include a mobile terminal 100 and is connected via a network, the Web server 200, the image recognition server 300. Image recognition server 300 is connected to the image server, connected to DB (310), the information registered by the information provider DB (320). Information provider-specific information registration DB (320) may be configured to include a promotion DB (320A), shopping DB (320B). Various DB may be a convenience to both the general classification of the comment to be named DB server 305.

According to this embodiment, the image code associated with the image recognition server 300, when only one information in a single image is to be provided can be composed of a single code, but providing a plurality of information provider information registered in one image, to an image server connected to DB (310) and separate from the information provider-specific information registered in the image DB recognition server 300 exist separately, it is preferred to. An image server connected to DB (310), the code value being associated with at least one information provider-specific information registration DB (320) is stored in one of the image information.

Each image can be registered or the system operator is registered by the mobile terminal 100. In addition, a method for registering the image can be registered in the promotion DB (320A), shopping DB (320B) separated by a promotional registration and registration mall.

When referred to herein referred promote introduction or album purchase the site for a number of means in the form of promotions and sales, including video means, such as Internet shopping.

Mobile terminal 100 held by installing the APP application for providing information using an image recognition technique of the present invention. When the function of the mobile terminal 100, and transmits the image or pattern value obtained from the mobile terminal to the image recognition server 300. This image may be an image photographed via the APP or internal camera function installed in the mobile terminal may be a recognition image, and may be an image that is separately down, secured in a manner such as a scan. The preferred method is a camera, recording or image recognition. In response, the mobile terminal 100 by receiving the search results (the image code values) from the image recognition server 300 and transmits it to the web server 200.

Image recognition server 300 performs a function that got transfer the image from the mobile terminal 100 extracts the image pattern value, and retrieve the most similar image pattern value of the image pattern value previously registered got transfer the image pattern value directly , retrieve the results (the image code value) and transmits it to the mobile terminal 100. In other ways is also possible to transfer to the Web server 200 without transmitting the search result to the mobile terminal 100.

Web server 200 information to find the promotional code value shopping for the code values ​​registered in the image code value received from the provider-specific information registration DB (320), a promotional registration to promotional code values ​​(introduction, photo albums, videos, ) information or the mobile terminal (1000 received the Store URL information and the like registered in the shopping mall code value to the mobile station 100 and passes it is displayed promotional information or shopping information on the mobile display. in particular, shopping information, the mall UI ( If you select the icon) show that one or a plurality of information Store, select the Store you want of them.

In this embodiment, the image recognition server 300 is the same (closest) serves to locate the image transfer the image code value, the Web server 200 PR from the stored image code that finds value DB server code value and malls find the code value, and has again been described as an intermediary role in finding the information registered in the promotional code values ​​and code values ​​mall. However, if necessary, the image recognition server 300 and Web server 200 can be configured as a single server.

It will now be described in detail the image registration method.

Image registration method, i) a method for registering a new image that is not registered in existing and ii) based method to find the desired image from the registered image they want to register additional information on the image can exist.

In a way to find a desired image from a pre-registered image, ii-1) to register the image in advance, corresponding to that registered image keywords, so as to register with and how to locate through the keyword search, ii-2) Search for identical or most similar image through the image, or you can search by selecting the method for registering the images used in the search. That the ii-3) in addition to the pattern groups error value of the register value and the pattern group and the registration image registered image to the same or only a little and a method that may be regarded as the same image. However, according to a method according to the image in some cases is an entirely different image to be regarded as the same image. Therefore, when using this method may be effective to configure so as to have a certain standard.

And further described in detail how to determine whether the same image in order to register the image.

The first method, if the value of the image pattern to the newly registered group registration pattern image and the value of the predetermined value or more is considered to be a method for the same image. That is, the pattern value as a result value of the comparison value compared with the comparative image is the more extraction when many extraction (Query Image Score) is higher comes out because the potential to be considered to be equal to a different image is extremely small compared values ​​of the comparison image is a certain level or higher When it is highly regarded in the same way that image. The above method requires an additional way to find the same image in a certain level or less.

The second method, there is a method for determining according to the comparison rate above a certain level of the image newly registered and the previously registered image. According to this method, you will be able to calculate a matching rate by extracting the reference value (Resxult Image Score) in a pattern value for the pre-registered image be calculated to compare the comparison value (Query Image Score) of the comparison image rate.

Group compared to the method of calculating the reference value, the pattern value of the registered image, but also to three the number of pattern values ​​derived from the image engine server 300 to the reference value, the pre-registered group by searching for the same image as the registered image a comparison value calculated by the reference value may be the three. These measures like the first method, the comparison value is below a certain threshold can be considered a different image of the same image.

Whether the end compared with the comparison value calculated by comparing rates below a certain end value comparison may be a determination whether or not the same image is the effective method to check the human judgment. The reason is that, for example out to a comparison value equal to two depending on the case when we retrieve the time and the images with the trade name for the product logo would register the image of a particular brand logos, and searches for the above product logos because it can.

Figure 2 is a reference diagram for explaining a process of identifying the same whether a similar image by using an image recognition technique according to an embodiment of the invention.

2, the illustration (a) and Figure (b) is the same, but these products, a different product model are different only G1, G1FE character is in the product. On the other hand, Figure (c) is a model just put segyeo letters of GS Caltex in the bottom of the same product in Figure (a).

This combines the traditional image recognition technology to look at the pattern values ​​are shown in (a) and lists the errors in Figure (a) Figure (c) greater than the difference is much larger figure (a) of Figure (b) is a figure (c ) is highly likely to be recognized as more than a similar image in Figure (b). For this reason, the way to solve such a problem can be a way of using the human cognitive abilities effectively. Where it borrows the human cognitive abilities will mean that the additional step that is selected from the image displayed on the terminal screen, not to apply the human cognitive ability as part of the system.

When the end informant to register the image, and the image similar to the image considered to be the same image comparison value is (Query Image Score) is above a certain level of existing image recognition comparing searches for that is registered in the server (300) Image and gekkeum be automatically registered, in a certain level or less, and that at least exposed to one or more on the screen, the most similar image information providers are pre-registered images and they may be desirable to implement to select an image to use in an image that you want to register in the first place have.

According to another method, though the same image is extracted and if the user is configured to register to select the image to their properties in the same image. In this case, the image recognition server 100 is provided there is to be registered, the two identical images will require resolution in this case. Its solution is the comparison value of the comparison image is high in order a plurality of comparison images retrieved by the comparison values ​​of the high comparison image (Query Image Score) or a group of the plurality of image reference value (Result Image Score) and found in the registered image by calculating the comparison ratio of the comparison value compared to rate the rear service user, having so a plurality of displayed images or simple information above a certain level on the screen to see the images or simple information which they are derived to select the desired information It may take the way.

Image in a number of ways to extract the image code may be sent to the mobile terminal 100 is extracted from the image recognition server 300, the mobile terminal 100 with the comparison rate above a certain level in the method recognize the server 300 in a method of selecting only the code image having a predetermined image transmission code comparing rate above a certain level or more of the number received.

Number, rather than a high rate compared to the array method of the image information in the first method sihayeo much the information registered in the image array and the other one is preferably arranged in the tail. The reason is that most of the information provider, select the same image, but registration information, and dare to information from the same image being an information provider, select the image that you want to own this property is the image you want subtracting informant aft to register their already If you have registered, because the effect of inducing hagekkeum select the image.

Figure 3 is a reference diagram for explaining a method for automatically finding the same image by using the image recognition technique according to an embodiment of the invention.

3, the same to all the comparison values ​​and the group said over a reference value, new image search reference value and a new image of the pre-registered image in the image recognition server registered as to automate the above-described method embodiments pictures same considered as a way of image.

In other words, the comparison value with the reference value of the group reference value and a new image of the registered image extracted, the method of determining it is determined whether or not the same between the comparison value compared with the group the new image registration image.

More specifically, the image to be registered with the image recognition server or test image server extracts the reference value of the image, and registers the image to the image recognition server. Next, the extraction reference value for the new image through image recognition server or test image recognition server. Extract the closest comparison value for the new image through the image recognition server. If compared with a reference value of the group registered image to be subjected to the comparison values ​​and the comparison values ​​for the new image outside of the specific tolerance range and registers the new image to the image recognition server with the new image. A comparison value is equal to the reference value of the group of registration images or within a certain tolerance of the new image, the comparison value of the new image is equal to or less than a certain tolerance compared to the reference value of the new image will be treated as the same image. If the comparison value of the new image beomwieul certain errors out compared with a reference value of the new image can be configured to be registered as a new image.

Procedure and method of the step can be variously changed, but the basic concept is the same as all of the comparative values ​​of the image properties the group over the reference value, the new image search reference value and a new image of the image-based registration to the image recognition server or margin of error of ways, which may be the basis for how to consider the same image to generate when there are less than one shall all be included in the method.

On the other hand, a method for extracting a reference value from the above is not a problem if the system in which the reference value when to register the image to the image recognition server can be directly extracted, if the image recognition server is stored by extracting only values ​​image patterns of the image for the extraction reference value has the same image method samneun a comparison value of the image through the re-search in the image recognition server as a reference value.

Furthermore, the procedure in the step is considered to be the same when the result is the same even if some changes.

4 is an example of a registered information DB table per image DB server connection with advertising, shopping information provider according to an embodiment of the invention.

Referring to Figure 4, a shopping mall and promotional codes codes are matched against each of the image code. For example, when an arbitrary image has been registered, the image code of R1512224000100 is generated and stored in the matching with the image. Promotional information provider-specific information registration DB table has become an information provider 1, 2, 3, each registered a promotional code, DB mall will have a registration code for shopping.

And promotional codes mean, and the code for the shopping that comes in many forms, such as a number of factors that can promote introduction, videos, and photo albums are connected to one or a plurality of registered mall link address. For example, the information provider 1 is also registered under PR and Speaking also will register Store allocated Fig promotional code, mail order code may be also assigned.

And it will include a promotional code to register the information that you want to own this property, etc. introduction, videos, albums, shopping malls code I have this one beets to one million registered and also registered a number of shopping malls URL link.

Hereinafter, the method of providing information using an image recognition technique according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail.

5 is a flow chart for how to find the image to be registered in the register group through the keyword search images according to an embodiment of the invention.

This scheme is a method for a large number of content providers, each register the other information in the same image. First, the PC or the mobile terminal 100 is connected to the Internet network connected to a Web server 200 for providing services using the image recognition technology is a keyword match for a given image (A01). An image registered in the keyword from the web server 200 is transmitted over at least one displayed on the PC screen or the mobile terminal (A02). Is one of the images on the screen of the PC or the mobile terminal 100 is selected, the associated information is registered (A03). The selected images and related information is sent to the web server (200) (A04).

When in this embodiment, or the image corresponding to the search keyword is not the images of the information provider wants pictures been searching for the keyword using a PC or a mobile terminal 100, adds a step to register the new image, or other process, this can be added.

Figure 6 is a flow chart of a method for registering it is determined whether or not whether the register group through the search for the image to be registered according to an embodiment of the invention the image, and select a group image to register the image or newly registered according to the result to be.

First, a PC or a mobile terminal (100) connected to the Internet network to connect to the web server 200 to provide services using the image recognition technology to upload a specific image search (B01). Web server 200 transmits the image received by the image recognition server, wherein the transmission (300) (B02). Image recognition server 300 analyzes the characteristic pattern values ​​of the transmitted image (B03). Image recognition server 300 compares the image pattern value previously registered and pattern values ​​for the transmitted image (B04). Image recognition server 300 transmits the image information for the same or most similar to the pattern value of at least one or more to a web server (200) (B05). Web server 200 is displayed on the screen of the image information transmitted and transmits it to the PC or the mobile terminal 100 in the PC or the mobile terminal 100 (B06). It is at least one of the PC or the mobile terminal 100 and the image or images on the screen the images used in the search is selected, the associated information is registered (B07). It said selected image and the associated information is sent to the web server (100) (B08).

The group to compare the value of the compare register value, an image pattern when image (Image Query Score) is above a predetermined level are regarded as the same image may be a step which automatically registered added.

Or of the comparative image to the previous step instead of the pre-registered image search the same images as compared to an image comparison value shown (Query Image Score) reference value (Resxult Image Score) is stored or step and search a new storing the reference value over a predetermined level to If the comparison value is equal to or more than a certain ratio compared as compared to the reference value it may be added to the phase to be registered automatically regarded as the same image.

Further, in the above embodiment the image sent from the PC or the mobile terminal 100, but a structure that is sent to the Web server 200 to the shelter image recognition server 300, the direct image recognized by the PC or the mobile terminal 100 transmitted to the server 300 or can be configured to result in a structure for transmitting to the rear web server 200 to the PC or the mobile terminal 100 from the image recognition server 300.

In addition, it is to analyze the characteristic pattern values ​​the image is sent to the image recognition server 300 but also to analyze it from the image recognition server 300, the image on the PC or the mobile terminal 100 or a separate server in the image to be transmitted it contains the logic for analyzing the pattern value that they can create a structure for transmitting to the image recognition server 300 analyzes the value of the pattern image.
