Abstract

In this project we designed and implemented an API which connects developers to various image services currently in use within the eBay Research Lab. These image services include image comparison and Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which allows for text and barcode extraction. In addition, we created a prototype system which works with the API to demonstrate dynamic email-based content for the end user. This prototype system allows users to send images for comparison and receive HTML responses via email.
