Ever found a clothing item online that you liked but did not know where to shop it? You try to google and describe it but no luck.
What it does
This is where CopTheLook comes in! With the image of the outfit, it detects the multiple clothing segments and brings shops to you. The ultimate product search.
How I built it
We used a vue flask stack for the website. Samasource pretrained model to segment the clothing items and Google Cloud Vision API to search the clothing items' shops.
Challenges I ran into
The challenging part was to find an API that will give show us where to buy an item. We tried scraping websites doing that such as tineye.com but no luck. We then decided to use google vision.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We built a fully functional web app, available for anyone to use, in just over the weekend!
What I learned
The amazing complexity of UI/UX design using Vue.js. How a computer vision segmenting model can be super accurate and also extremely innacurate from time to time
What's next for CopTheLook
Improve the searching model to get more accurate results. Also, show the prices from the shops on our website. Be able to filter the results to a specific shop you love. Lots can be improved!
