Computer vision is a cutting-edge technology that Rakuten’s Technology Division is using to realize all kinds of innovations and solutions for Group services worldwide. It enables computers to “see” like humans and extract information, as well as text or sentences from an image, and can even enlarge images or improve the picture quality.

 In this report, we focus on how the technology is benefitting Rakuten services, in particularly Rakuten Ichiba. For example:

  • Helping merchants to make their webpages easier to navigate by “cleaning up” product images,
  • automatically generating thousands of banners and campaign coupons, and
  • increasing the number of products that can be shown in display ads.

 Hear from both the development and business side for an insightful look at this innovative technology!
