Slyce Redefines The Shopping Experience
The shopping experience, especially during the holidays, can be exhausting at best. We are used to standing in long lines, talking with sales people and engaging with strangers that are just trying to finish shopping and go home to see their families. The idea of window shopping sounds great, and it has been something that we, as a society, have been discussing for some time now. Then, with technology evolving and readily available at the palm of our hands we are able to engage in a shopping experience that is unique and easily accomplished. With Slyce’s image recognition and visual search software, the shopping experience is less of a hassle. It is an engaging shopping experience, too. They make it so we can just take a picture of something we want to purchase, and we can get it sent to our homes or businesses. This can be something we see in a store, something we see in a window display, or it can be something that one of our friends has in their home. Imagine seeing a new cutlery set that you wish to purchase. Your friend just bought it, and you want one too. Instead of going to the mall, you get to purchase it right then and there.
New Changes To Slyce
Slyce has recently acquired a company called Snip Snap. Snip Snap offers a product called Scout, which accesses images taken from the users’ cameras. It uses these images to search online results, of course. At the same time it does something incredible for the shopping experience. The user is connected with a representative of the company that is a personal shopper on the virtual level. The representative searches for the image and product. They come up with their own suggestions, which helps the user get the product their deserve. Slyce is redefining the shopping experience for us all.
It’s interesting how the world dimensions for ascertaining economic progress are fast changing positions. Few can now recall that not long ago, the nations’ economic performance was determined by how much a country was producing in the agriculture sector. Cash crops were the epicenter of economic growth. This can be seen from the slavery and slave trade that shipped Africans to Europe and American to provide cheap labor for the farms. The business and technology industry arguably existed in ancient Greece and was first debated by the Greek philosophers Aristotle and his peers. The original meaning has however mutated over time motivated by the 19th-century renaissance in innovations, and the industry accrued more traction in the 20th century with the onset of the internet. A common folk would presently define the industry as a phone, computer, motor vehicle, communication and construction companies, etc.
The world has witnessed this transition with mega enthusiasm, acceptance, and approval. The business technology industry of this new era received enormous embrace in its inception ideally because of the easiness it came with seeking to make man’s life better. It’s currently the fastest growing venture fueled by innovations being regularly unearthed. Governments of the day have had no other option but to digitize their systems too enabling them run even more efficiently. As each country endeavor to advance the living standards of its citizens, the loudest campaigns and most stringent affirmative actions are being undertaken in the business and technology industry. The US president Mr. Barrack Obama can be said to be the most glamorous preacher and supporter of business and technical gospel with his appeal to governments to educate and support the youth in the industry. The move he argues will rationalize the nations to meet the demands of the time.
I support president Obama, and if you doubt, Sheygan Kheradpir, present CEO of Juniper is an ideal example to reckon with. He Ph.D. holder in electrical engineering with a focus on control systems. His triumph in technology is terrifically profound. His entry into innovation was groundbreaking when he built an organization that developed the first national network management platform for GTE, which integrated infrastructure, transmission, and switching; called TUNICS. His accomplishments are innumerable, but it’s worth noting that Sheygan spurred the innovation of the award-winning high-speed data FiOS interacting TV and internet streaming software. This truly explains why the United States is the number one economy in the world.
It’s irrefutable that nations massively investing in this field are the very operators of the most powerful economic engines in the world while economies in jeopardy have had tiny regard to the sector. Although other areas are pretty important too, the 21st rules of the economic game demand that more attention is directed towards business and technology. Some have coined it as digitization. This includes funding and sophisticated skill, a consequent of proper education to all.
Statistics has put it quite clear that the top richest people on earth are businessmen in technology. Bill Gates, the Microsoft owner and Carlos Slim Helu, and family, telecom is the top two exchanging positions occasionally. These two gentlemen contribute enormously to the United States economy.
Virtual reality has been a slow growing technology, but with recent advancements the long awaited experience is now going to be available for household use starting in 2016. A tweet released by Nate Mitchell, executive of Oculus Rift, confirmed the release of a virtual reality headset that will be available to consumers in the first quarter of 2016.
The recent failure of Google glass left consumers with a feeling of hopelessness in regards to worthwhile virtual reality technology. Now, Oculus Rift is promising fans “compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for virtual reality.
Facebook acquired the rights to Oculus Rift last year, which is expected to be the first successful virtual reality device released on the open market. Unfortunately, gaming fans around the world have believed the big promises of developers of this advancing technology, but have been sorely disappointed.
Susan McGalla says one thing is for certain… fans are willing to give the new and promising headset a try despite previous failures of similar technology.
