Title: METHOD FOR IMAGE SEARCHING AND SYSTEM THEREOF
Abstract:
The present disclosure is drawn to methods and systems for providing a representative image for a search result in a search result listing of a searching system. At least one search result based on a search query is received. Each search result has a plurality of images. For each search result, a similarity score for at least some of the images is computed, based on a similarity with the search query. Then, at least one of the images is selected, on the basis of the similarity score, and the selected image is assigned as the representative image of the search result. A number of modification steps may be performed on the search result prior to computing the similarity score. The search result and assigned representative image may also be presented in a search result listing.
