ImageSearcher

public final class ImageSearcher

Performs similarity search on images.

The API expects a TFLite model with optional, but strongly recommended, TFLite Model Metadata..

  • Input image tensor (kTfLiteUInt8/kTfLiteFloat32)
    • image input of size [batch x height x width x channels].
    • batch inference is not supported (batch is required to be 1).
    • only RGB inputs are supported (channels is required to be 3).
    • if type is kTfLiteFloat32, NormalizationOptions are required to be attached to the metadata for input normalization.
  • Output tensor (kTfLiteUInt8/kTfLiteFloat32)
    • N components corresponding to the N dimensions of the returned feature vector for this output layer.
    • Either 2 or 4 dimensions, i.e. [1 x N] or [1 x 1 x 1 x N].

TODO(b/180502532): add pointer to example model.

TODO(b/222671076): add factory create methods without options, such as `createFromFile`, once the single file format (index file packed in the model) is supported.
