Visually Similar Recommendations

Visually similar recommendations refer to a type of recommendations on the eCommerce site wherein the products shown are visually similar to a specific product of interest. It is an eCommerce best practice to display this type of recommendation on a product detail page. The dataset for displaying this recommendation type is generated using image recognition technology. Visually similar recommendations are useful in improving conversions because many times shoppers may not be able to articulate the right search terms, but they may react more positively to other items that appear similar to the one they are exploring.
