They’ve cracked some tough problems in virtual fitting and that’s why we were interested in the company. E-commerce firms are gravitating towards product discovery and personalization. Image intelligence is key here.

Flipkart recently introduced a new feature which allows users to search via images in the fashion category. Myntra is also working on new features that will use the mobile camera and other capabilities like location awareness, for more personalized recommendation.
