Introduction to ImageSearch SDK

Overview of ImageSearch

ImageSearch leverages cutting-edge deep learning and image recognition technologies to deliver service- and industry-specific feature vectorization and search capabilities to help your search of exact/fuzzy match images from the specified gallery.

ImageSearch is offered through open application programming interfaces (APIs). You can obtain an image search result by accessing and calling an API in real time.

SDK Overview

The ImageSearch software development kit (SDK) encapsulates the RESTful APIs provided by ImageSearch to simplify application development. You can directly call API functions provided by the ImageSearch SDK to obtain the ImageSearch service capabilities.


ImageSearch SDK does not support access retry. If an access error occurs, the SDK directly returns the request result. Therefore, you need to establish a retry mechanism on the client.
