If you’re interested in learning how image search engines work, or trying to build one of your own, you’ve come to the right place.
I’m an entrepreneur who has launched two successful image search engines: ID My Pill, an iPhone app and API that identifies prescription pills in the snap of a smartphone’s camera, and Chic Engine, a fashion search engine for the iPhone. Previously, my company ShiftyBits has consulted with the National Cancer Institute to develop image processing and machine learning algorithms to automatically analyze breast histology images for cancer risk factors.
I received my Bachelors of Science from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2010. I then received my Ph.D at the same institution in 2014 where I studied computer vision, machine learning, and information retrieval.
I’m here to share the tips, tricks, and hacks I’ve learned in the past 8 years working in the startup field and building computer vision, machine learning, and image search engine systems.

About this Blog
This blog is dedicated to helping other programmers understand how image search engines work. While a lot of computer vision concepts are theoretical in nature, I’m a big fan of “learning by example”. My goal is to distill my life experiences in building image search engines into concise, easy to understand examples.
My name is Adrian Rosebrock. I’ve been working in the startup world professionally for the past 8 years, while at the same time earning my PhD in Computer Science with a focus in Computer Vision and Machine Learning at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
