The Design and Implementation of a Real Time Visual Search System on JD E-commerce Platform

19 Aug 2019  ·  Jie Li, Haifeng Liu, Chuanghua Gui, Jianyu Chen, Zhenyun Ni, Ning Wang ·

We present the design and implementation of a visual search system for real time image retrieval on, the world's third largest and China's largest e-commerce site. We demonstrate that our system can support real time visual search with hundreds of billions of product images at sub-second timescales and handle frequent image updates through distributed hierarchical architecture and efficient indexing methods. We hope that sharing our practice with our real production system will inspire the middleware community's interest and appreciation for building practical large scale systems for emerging applications, such as ecommerce visual search.
