Sogou, the search engine curated by Sohu.com, launched its image-based search solution lately by which users can search images based on the pictures they uploaded.

According to Ru Liyun, the General Manager of Search Business Division of Sogou, the company has spent half a year and hundreds of thousands USD on the feature.

Usually, we search for a picture by input text keywords into search bar, while on Sogou image-based search, we could upload a picture or input an online picture’s URL as a reference to land more similar pictures.
