  • This page contains materials on a one-hour hands-on seminar, "Writing an Image Search Engine from Scratch".
  • A simple image-based image search engine is introduced.
  • The engine is based on a Flask framework with Keras. Each image is represented by a 4096D fc6 feature using a pre-trained VGG16 network.
  • The engine has just 43 lines (python) + 24 lines (html).
