Facebook just bought a start-up that helps you shop for furniture using AI
“We are excited to welcome GrokStyle to Facebook,” Facebook spokeswoman Vanessa Chan said in a statement. The company did not disclose a purchase price. “Their team and technology will contribute to our AI capabilities.”
GrokStyle published a goodbye post for its customers, users and investors, saying the company would be winding down business. On the Ikea mobile app, users can snap a photo of a piece of furniture and use GrokStyle’s technology to receive matches for similar products.
“Today, we are excited to share that we are moving on as a team,” GrokStyle announced on its website. “Our team and technology will live on, and we will continue using our AI to build great visual search experiences for retail.”
