Integrating a search function that uses image recognition in adalo


I’m building a somewhat Vivino clone but then for books and want to integrate a search option where users can scan the cover of a book and it will retrieve information from a database regarding this book, is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve done a bit of research and I think Google Cloud Vision API could be useful for this.
I may even make a prototype later to test what’s possible.

Can you integrate that into adalo?

You can leverage OpenAi’s GPT4 for this too.

Hello, yes it’s possible if you’re using a third party API that provide this feature.

Thank you!

how would you integrate that into Adalo, I don’t see where I can connect a third party api into a scan function

@alex-hidaku Do you have any steps on how to implement this using OpenAi?

@Ali-Bazzi Do you have any thirdparty apps you recommend that can do such a thing, but then with Adalo?

You guys could use the Open AI Vision API to get the book’s name and then you guys can store that name in a input or in a property and filter the books list returned from google from that name.

where did you add the api connection between adalo and openai? Like how does this give it access to the camera

You can create a custom action like above and then add a image picker in to the screen and add a button and in the button add the custom action and for the image url add image picker>url from magic text and store the return value from the custom action with another action after that action in a user property or in a input and link it to the next screen and filter the list returning the records from google with that stored value.
