Same Energy is a visual search engine. You can use it to find beautiful art, photography, decoration ideas, or anything else. Same Energy's core search uses "deep learning".
The default feeds available on the home page are algorithmically curated: a seed of 5-20 images are selected by hand, then our system builds the feed by scanning millions of images in our index to find good matches for the seed images. You can create feeds in just the same way: save images to create a collection of seed images, then look at the recommended images.
Thanks for reading and until next time!
