Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Grows With Acquisition of Visual Shopping Startup GrokStyle

“Facebook said it acquired visual shopping and artificial intelligence startup GrokStyle in a move to bolster the social-media company’s own AI work.

GrokStyle’s technology, which was integrated into Ikea’s mobile app, was simple in practice. A user takes a picture of a piece of furniture and the technology would match it to similar products that could be purchased online. On its website, GrokStyle said it is “winding down” its business, but that it is “moving on as a team” along with its technology. The company didn’t disclose it’s joining (FB, +0.58%) Facebook.”
