Online property portal based out of Southeast Asia, PropertyGuru Group recently announced what it has in store of its search engine, PropertyGuru Lens.

Powered by augmented reality, artificial intelligence (deep learning), geolocational data and the Group’s proprietary data, PropertyGuru Lens is South-east Asia’s first visual search solution for the property sector.

Hari V. Krishnan, Chief Executive & Product Officer, PropertyGuru Group, said: “PropertyGuru has been making big bets on technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) and we’ve been passionately working to connect different technologies to reimagine property discovery for everyone.”

He continued: “Today, we’re pleased to unveil PropertyGuru Lens, a visual search solution that basically turns your smartphone camera from a passive tool that’s capturing the world around you to one that’s allowing you to interact with the buildings in your camera’s viewfinder. PropertyGuru Lens is our bold attempt to define the future of property search.”

Real-world property search, powered by real-time images

Property search has always been PropertyGuru’s flagship product, and PropertyGuru Lens expands on that core competency in new and exciting ways.

At a very basic level, PropertyGuru Lens is a visual property search engine, which means it can analyse the visual data of a building image using deep learning, and together with geolocation data, perform several different tasks based on the contents of that image.

Hari explained:“PropertyGuru Lens will effectively turn your smartphone camera into a real-world search device. Focus the camera on any residential building and the underlying technology analyses and interprets residential building images in your line of sight and brings up property listings of units that are available for purchase and rent – all in real-time. Simply put – point, tap and discover homes on-the-go!”
