HOW SLYCE HAS LEVERAGED A.I.TO SEE IT GROW

With the help of Artificial Intelligence, it is now possible to search images online. You can quickly take out you phone camera and explore a dress you have just seen. It is going to change the world of e-commerce forever. It is one of the best things to happen in electronic commerce.

Shoes.com and Pinterest are testing new software that brings human-like abilities to E-commerce. The advances in A.I means it is now possible to have an entirely commercial form of image search. They are using a technique called deep learning that allows the software to have abilities matched by the human brain in search algorithms.

Amazon has been using the technology and even launched a phone to utilize the same technology. It was a big failure but one that gave us valuable lessons. Google bought Like.com in 2010 and has implemented visual search with varying degrees of success.

Kevin Jing of Pinterest says the visual search is the new frontier for all retailers. It allows one to take off your phone and search whatever you want.

com has partnered with Canadian stores women boot section to test a technology developed by Sentient. It uses artificial intelligence to search. You select a boot you fancy and try to triangulate to the particular order. Each section brings in new selections. They are in a grid format of 12 boots to search. It is a form of search that can quickly lead one who was lost back to light.

Slyce is a Canadian company that has already commercialized this technology. It is an app that allows you to pick out objects using your camera and search them online.

It has launched partnerships with 20 retail US companies and has grown rapidly. It started the services in 2013 from its headquarters in Toronto. The app is available on all leading platforms.

It has developed several features for use by retailers. These products include Snap to buy feature. It integrates into a retailer’s website and give them access to the millions of customers using Slyce. Another feature is visual relevancy that allows one to search a related product and be delivered to the retailers site.

All these are ways to monetize an app.It is one of the most difficult jobs for any App. Slyce has aced that, and it seems set on going far.

Urbana doesn’t help charites for show or to improve his ratings. He does it because he cares, just like he cared about his lacrosse career at Villanova. Charities are his way of giving back, not only with money but with his time and very own hands as well.

With plenty of support shown for his charity drives, even on Yahoo Answers, Jon Urbana is one of the few that actually take the time to stop, share, care, give, and provide for some of the less fortunate who have fallen upon hard times. He sees people – even his colleagues – as his friends and family.

Urbana has done remarkable work both on and off the stage, as I am sure you are quite aware of his musical background expertise. Here’s one of my favorite Urbana tracks (Swan Song) below:

My Stroke Could Have Killed Me, But Nobilis Health Saved My Life

After one lonely night of heavy drinking, I found myself in the hospital looking up from my bed at the bright lights above me. I also saw my family around me, but I realized that I couldn’t move my right arm or my right leg. I wasn’t sure about what was going on, but a doctor quickly came in and informed me that I had a stroke. All the years of drinking had finally taken a toll on my body, and I had a stroke when I passed out from being drunk, and it was a family member who found me and saved my life.

I was taken to a Nobilis Health facility that was near my home, and they saved my life. Not only did they save my life, but they gave me a plan to execute on how I was going to get back to normal. I mentioned to the doctor that I couldn’t feel anything on my right side, and he told me it was because of the stroke. Although I was very depressed, I was told that with some surgery as well as physical rehabilitation, I might be able to get back to normal. I was also informed that drinking was no longer a possibility.

I was determined to be myself again, but I wasn’t certain how to move forward. I spent days alone in the hospital crying over my predicament, but I would have a nurse come in once in a while, and they would comfort me in my pain. Even if I had family members come in, I still felt depressed. One of the Nobilis Health nurses saw me crying one day, and she came in and talked to me about my condition. She told me that her father had had the same type of stroke, and he had one side of his body stop working as well.

When I asked her what happened to her father, she actually pulled out her smartphone and showed me a video that was from days before of her father running in a marathon and enjoying his life. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, but the date on the phone proved the video was recent. The nurse gave me all the hope that I needed to look forward to the future, and hopefully I’ll be able to have a success story like her father. No matter what happens in the future, Nobilis Health has saved my life, and I’m grateful and shared it on insiderreport.
