Wordless Search Technology: Novel Search Infrastructure Powering Global Retailers

Wordless Search Technology

Fact No. 1: Your shoppers aren’t buying as much as they want to via your online store, resulting in lost sales. 

Fact No. 2: Wordless Search infrastructure can help you solve this problem quickly. Learn how.  

If you run an e-commerce platform, you probably know that it isn’t reaching its full conversion potential. And the potential of the e-commerce industry is enormous. According to a recent report by ResearchAndMarkets.com, the global e-commerce market size is expected to reach US$ 47.73 Trillion by 2030.

As you can see, the future of online retail looks very bright. Almost 50 trillion times brighter than we could imagine some 10 years ago.

Still, certain issues have been causing some e-commerce businesses to stagnate rather than catch the full swing the industry is currently in. Oberlo reports that the average bounce rate across online retail is 50%, meaning every other shopper leaves a website without purchasing.

The average e-commerce website conversion rate is also unexpectedly suboptimal, going as low as 2% in 2024

The problem? 

Traditional search methods based on keywords and product tags are slow, inefficient, and not shopper-friendly. The way modern consumers shop online has changed, including their shopping journey expectations, making the use of AI-powered e-commerce tools a necessity rather than a convenience.  

Luckily, there’s a quick and solid fix in the form of Wordless Search based on visual AI technology that is currently on its mission to enable e-commerce to reach the US$47.73 trillion mark much sooner than 2030.

What is Wordless Search?

Wordless search is a groundbreaking method for visually-driven product discovery, combining Visual AI with advanced product search technology. It analyzes shopper behavior to deliver the products the shopper actually wants to buy and tailor a personalized product feed for each consumer, mimicking their thought process in real-time.

Unlike traditional product search mechanisms that rely only on text-based search, Wordless Search analyzes visual data found in product images and assigns nuanced attributes to each item. This enables it to accurately predict and display relevant products throughout the shopper’s browsing session.

The Power of Wordless Search Infrastructure Based on Customer  Behavior Data 

Customer behavior data and AI are the backbone of Miros.ai’s Wordless Search technology, providing valuable insights into consumer behavior. 

By analyzing interactions, browsing history, and purchase patterns, this wordless search tool  deeply understands what drives your shoppers’ preferences and desires, allowing you to:

  • Tailor your offerings
  • Personalize recommendations
  • Anticipate future trends


Emily, an avid home chef with a cooking podcast, regularly uses Miros’ Wordless Search tool to find adequate dresses for her shooting sessions that go well with her kitchen environment. Through her interactions with the app, Miros.ai learns that she prefers colorful yet sleek, modern designs. As a result, Emily always receives curated and relevant product recommendations that align with her tastes and needs. 

How Miros’ Wordless Search Enhances the Shopping Journey

Imagine this: you’re scrolling through social media and come across a stunning outfit that you just have to have. Instead of trying to describe it in a search bar, you simply snap a picture and upload it to an online shop that offers the Miros Wordless Search option. 

Within seconds, you’re presented with a range of similar options from various retailers, making it easy to find the perfect match.

Or, if you don’t have a product photo ready, you can simply do one quick text-based search and keep tapping the products that resemble the one you’re looking for. In just a couple of taps and about 30 seconds later, you’ll get to the exact product you had in mind.  


Let’s again take Emily, our chef with a cool cooking podcast. For her next episode, she wants to get that recognizable dress that women (and some men) like to wear during beer festivals in Europe. She doesn’t know that the dress is called “Dirndl,” after a couple of failed text-based search attempts, she abandons this idea and gets another kind of dress. 

Now let’s take a look at what would happen if she had the Miros wordless search option:

Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

The Mechanism Behind Miros.ai

At the heart of wordless search technology lies advanced visual AI. Miros’ AI-powered algorithms analyze images with precision, continually learning and improving with each interaction. 

By understanding the visual nuances of products, Miros.ai can deliver highly accurate and relevant search results tailored to individual preferences.

It doesn’t rely only on keywords like other conventional search methods. Instead, it uses advanced visual AI for wordless search that allows your shoppers to have a Pinterest-like shopping experience and get to the products they had in mind in mere seconds. 

It works like this:

  1. The shopper inputs one text-based search query 
  2. Taps on a couple of images that match their intent
  3. Miros.ai then accurately interprets the product images and delivers relevant results
