VisualGraph Acquired by Pinterest

Jan 09, 2014


VisualGraph announced on its site that it is now part of Pinterest. VisualGraph is a machine-driven search platform that specializes in visual content. According to the post from founder Kevin Jing, "Our approach is to combine the state-of-the-art machine vision tools, such as object recognition (e.g. shoes, faces), with large-scale distributed search and machine learning infrastructures."

The VisualGraph site is short on details, and the team is small-just two people-but Jing expressed excitement at becoming part of the Pinterest team. He wrote, "We are excited for the opportunity to combine machine vision with human vision and curation, and to build a visual discovery experience that is both aesthetically appealing and immensely useful for people everywhere."
