Imagine, thousands of bolt and screw positions in the catalog, bulky filters, unclear product descriptions… all this is a headache for the retailer and its customers.

How to improve the customer journey through e-catalog and bring them to purchase? Let’s make a visual search app to find exactly the same screw or bolt by a photo only! And Python gives us a full set of instruments for doing that.

The main difficulty of the solution lies in the scalability of the screw number that the app can recognize. After the presentation, you will get the full pipeline of building the visual search system from a scratch with Python.
