In the next phase of its adoption, Artificial Intelligence is being actively used for creative pursuits. Staqu had previously commissioned a bi-directional image-to-image matching system, hence disrupting visual search for the ecommerce segment. With their debut app, Fashin, Staqu made it possible for users to discover fashion online from YouTube Music Videos, or by uploading a similar picture, whilst also comparing prices and getting the hottest fashion ecommerce deals of the day.
With Vistoso as their latest offering, Staqu has developed a quick image editing engine that transforms images and selfies to appear like the work of yesteryear’s famous artists.
