Visual search powered by artificial intelligence transforms the in-store shopping experience

84% of shoppers use their devices while shopping in-store
From the introduction of the Internet to the advent of mobile phones, technology has fundamentally changed how consumers browse, purchase and interact with retailers. This transformation is entering the retail store itself now, as consumers increasingly seek enhanced in-store mobile experiences. In fact, over 84% of shoppers say that say that they now use their devices while shopping in-store.

Influencer Marketing: Sure, It’s Effective, But At What Price?

“So I got the opportunity to check out the demo of this game ...” said Felix Kjellberg, a.k.a. YouTube star PewDiePie, in a 2014 video.
But it turned out that Kjellberg, who has about 48 million YouTube subscribers, was being a bit disingenuous. Actually, Warner Bros. was paying him and others tens of thousands of dollars to talk up “Shadow of Mordor,” a then-new video game.
Two years later, the Federal Trade Commission cracked down on Warner Bros., and Kjellberg offered his defense. His YouTube page had disclosed that the video was “sponsored by Warner Bros.” Kjellberg pointed out that he wasn’t required to disclose the payment but opted to do it anyway. “Yes, I could have disclosed it better,” he said. “I could have put it above the fold ...”
As scandals go, this was a small affair. Yet as more and more brands opt for influencer marketing and the Federal Trade Commission has begun monitoring the practice, such gaffes have become more common.

Why User Generated Content Will Win the Content Battle in Every Industry

Why User Generated Content Will Win the Content Battle in Every IndustryFacebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tripadvisor, Quora, Foursquare, Reddit, Yelp, Pinterest, Wikipedia, and Zomato are some of the most resonating consumer internet brands in the current internet landscape. 
And they have a common thread binding them all: a. They’re all content platforms. b. Users can consume the content for free. c. There are NO “content writers” on these companies’ payrolls.
The Genesis User Generated Content (UGC) is not a new phenomenon by any stretch. Any platform where the users of the platform are also the content creators is essentially a UGC platform. In fact, the terminology web 2.0 was coined for portals leveraging UGC. Blogging, which was a way for the erstwhile reader to express his or her thoughts, was one of the first forms of UGC.
Even though the term web 2.0 was coined in 2004, one of the pioneers of UGC, Tripadvisor, had already started creating a portal which offered reviews of places, citi…
