Slyce is one of the top visual search startups in the tech world. The Toronto company has raised a lot of money, and pioneered the launch of a fantastic visual search app. The company continues to raise funds as it expands a growing product line. A recent article in Yahoo! Finance shows the company had a very successful fourth-quarter of 2015.
The company has shuffled a bit of its finances, and is going forward with private placement funding of upwards of $7 million. The money is going to be used for a variety of purposes. The company has chosen to create apps outside the original scope of image recognition software, and this is a good thing. Apps associated with coupons are doing well for the company. The more successful apps the company produces (or purchases), the more successful Slyce will become.
Mobile visual search functions are going to be increased thanks to the development of a universal scanner. Retailers could end up connecting much better with customers thanks to a Slyce Link, a program designed to offer recommendations. 3D objects recognition programs takes image searches to the next level.
Slyce truly has a lot to offer customers and retailers. Various retail companies with heavy investments in online sales and marketing are turning to Slyce. Major companies with large market shares are integrating Slyce programs. Likely, these programs are going to do quite well for the retailers who take advantage of them.
2015 was a great year for Slyce. 2016 should end up to be just as eventful.
Start Ups In Visual Search Industry
There are a large number of start ups that are making a name for themselves in the visual search industry. These start ups have a lot of room to grow and change their industry because it is a relatively new field to explore. The visual search industry is making the online shopping experience a better experience for most of the consumers that prefer it in comparison to real life shopping experiences. The online shopping experience before visual search came along, however, has seemed like a frustrating experience to most users.
In an interesting article from the website Live Mint, a consumer shares her frustration with typical online shopping searches. Apparently, this consumer has been through a lot of detective work in order to produce the results that she finds. She is a young college graduate who is interested in finding clothing and shoes online. However, when she shops for her clothes and shoes in the traditional way, she comes up with very few results that are what she was looking for in her pursuit. She claims that the clothing is the wrong size. She also claims that the shoes are the wrong size for her. This is something that plenty of other consumers have the same problem with, so it needs to be addressed.
Addressing Online Shopping Issues
The issues with not having the right results in online shopping searches brings about the need for visual search programs. Slyce is one of the main players in this industry. They have created a very innovative take on online shopping. Slyce allows people to search for items based on a picture, a picture of either a 2D or 3D object. This often generates quite accurate results by using their AI programs that are in place.
Slyce has other measures in place that are designed to act as a barrier to when the artificial intelligence does not generate proper results. They have hired an actual customer care team. Slyce’s customer care team are available on the chat menu that is part of their application. They act as personal shoppers, and they make sure that the AI is running correctly. Slyce’s team is available for consumers to ask questions to when they are having trouble using the app or want help in their shopping experience.
The New York real estate markets can expect mixed results in the future, according to an article in the NY Daily News. 2016 is expected to be a difficult year for New York markets as a number of factors combine to slow sales in certain areas, but a growing luxury property market will continue to be a success for brokers in the city. A major issue facing the New York markets will be the rising interest rates expected in 2016, which will slow sales and make buyers consider their options more as less sales are expected to be completed.
Town Residential is a NYC luxury real estate brokerage positioned perfectly to make sure they remain immune to the issues expected on the markets in 2016. Headed by experienced real estate expert Andrew Heiberger the company has gained experience in its short life working in almost every area of New York City.
The team of professionals assembled by Town Residential bring skills from all areas of the markets, including both sales and rentals at all budget ranges. Town has been at the forefront of the growth in markets outside Manhattan, which have given the company a range of clients across the city.
The rental market is expected to continue to grow in 2016 as boroughs like Brooklyn continue to see new condo’s and rental buildings open in a range of budgets. Along with the increased focus on specific locations across New York the return of baby boomers to the city will see sales and rentals grow for people in certain age groups and areas. The return of baby boomers to the city and the increased number of rentals available in Brooklyn could see a rise in the rental market as reduced rents and incentives are introduced.
Finally, the NY Daily News explains the luxury property market should remain strong as the level of inventory in New York continues to rise in a range of different areas. For those seeking true luxury at a price of $10 million or more the market should remain largely unchanged, but increased competition is expected for those entering this market at the $1 million to $3 million range.

George Soros has been one of the leading investors and investment managers in the world for the past fifty years. Soros has successfully provided a strong return on investment to investors during several different investment and credit cycles. His success has allowed him to amass a net wroth of over $25 billion, which has made him one of the wealthiest people in the world. Soros is often consulted on many different topics, including the global economy, economic predictions, and other events that are impacting the world.
While he is largely interviewed for his take on economic and financial issues, Forbes billionaire George Soros is also frequently quested about his take on politics and other social issues. Soros was recently interviewed about the forthcoming US Presidential election, particularly the wild GOP election and debate process that has been going on for the past year. Soros had plenty to say, particularly about potential nominee Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has been adamant about controlling the borders of the United States and doing the best the country can to stop additional immigration, particularly of Muslims. While Trump has been boasting that this would be best for the security of the country, Soros believes that this could actually have a negative effect on the security of the United States. Soros stated that if Trump actively closes the borders and prevents Muslims from entering the country, it would actually lead to more animosity and violence in the United States. He also stated that he believes it would difficult to ever build and maintain the wall against Mexico that Trump has been recommending.
During the same interview, Soros also commented on how Germany has handled the Syrian refugee crisis. He has stated that chancellor Angela Merkel invested a significant amount of political capital by having an open borders policy, and it now appears that she lost that investment. With the recent terrorist attacks in Europe, many people inside Germany are now concerned that the policy is too liberal and is putting the country at risk. This policy is also causing a rift with other countries in the European Union.
Yeonmi Park‘s family defected and abandoned life in their native North Korea when she was just thirteen years old. Now at twenty-three, Yeonmi has made a point to share her story with others. “People need to know,” Yeonmi said. “My father died without knowing democracy. We could not even comprehend what freedom meant.” Yeonmi’s parents began saving money to hire smugglers to assist them in leaving North Korea. Her family had already faced many hardships, but their awakening came after watching the 1997 film Titanic. “We were able to see that life could be different,” Yeonmi said. “My friend’s mother was executed for watching a James Bond film and sharing it with others. I saw it happen. Then I realized I had done the same thing, hundreds of times.” Yeonmi’s father was arrested during an illegal attempt to raise money for his family. Her family became impoverished due to the loss of her father’s income. They were faced with starvation. “We were given just a frozen potato, many times,” she said of her early life. Yeonmi’s mother hired smugglers to aid them in fleeing to China. They intended to remain in China only temporarily, but the smugglers had other plans for the terrified two. One of the smugglers raped and enslaved the teen and her mother, after days of leading them through dark forests, across mountains, and over partially frozen rivers. Yeonmi was taken as a child-bride. “I do not like to speak of it, “Yeonmi said. “It is a shame for a North Korean woman to lose their purity. Speaking of it, to me, feels like the world has ended.” Yeonmi and her mother were captured together but later freed. The two planned to cross into Mongolia and somehow find their way to South Korea. While they did arrive at their destination, they encountered hardships during their journey. Yeonmi and her mother survived their trek through the Gobi Desert and were detained by border guards. “We cried to them not to deport us to North Korea,” Yeonmi said. “We told them that we would be killed.” Yeonmi and her mother were deported to South Korea where they have since worked to grasp and understand freedom. Yeonmi of casey and yeonmi show enrolled in college and became a human rights activist.
The Truth About Premium Dog Food Is Pleasantly Surprising
I was raised to be a skeptic. When I started looking into the eye of the premium dog food industry, I was afraid of what I would find. I have done a load of research on the topic, and I am sure that I am an expert on the subject at this point. It’s a strange thing to be an expert about, besides the fact that my dog’s health is important to me and my family. I found a great article that supports the premium dog food industry with in depth, insider interviews. It’s from a legitimate news source, and it portrays the premium dog food industry as a rising industry that answers the concerns of consumers constantly. Purina actually has a website that they set up to answer consumers concerns about ingredients where the consumer can input exactly what they want their dog to eat into the Amazon website, and Purina will generate a food based on their requests just for that dog. That personal touch can go a long way with consumers, but I am already satisfied with Purina Store’s Beneful Dry Dog Food Original, and my dog is apparently satisfied with its taste. Beneful goes a long way with my dog, and it seems like he can’t get enough of that good stuff. That last bowl of Beneful must have really hit the spot. We went for a walk after breakfast, and he seemed extra energetic. He needs all those nutrients in order to support his active lifestyle. My dog never seems to get tired until it’s time to go to bed, thanks to Purina Beneful. I raised him on the good stuff, too. Premium dog food is made of premium ingredients, so you know what you get. When you buy it you get your money’s worth. If you want to support this idea of keeping Beneful premium dog food at this high quality, then you should read the article by the Daily Herald. Be sure to share it with others, too. Take a look at it by going here.
Through all the technological advancements that have come with the internet, text box searches have remained consistent. Everyone is used to the way we search things, type words into a rectangular box to get the search results you are wanting, but recent advances in image recognition software may offer some changes to this. Major online names like Pinterest and Shoes.com are testing new ways to preform searches by using images.
Both these companies have embraced a method called deep learning which allows software to match human features for image recognition. This is the method that is used in Google’s image search and the new photo organization they launched this summer called Automated Helpers.
The visual search allows users to draw a box around an image then place it in a search box to find results that are similar. Some of these search results come equipped with buy buttons making searching and purchasing so much simpler. Amazon included an app that finds products similar to photos taken by users on their Fire smartphone they released last year.
Kevin Jing, the head of visual search at Pinterest, feels that this visual searching method will soon become indispensable. He feels this method of searching items is much more accurate and each year offers many improvements to the software.
Shoes.com is testing a different method of the search by making use of an image-processing technology aimed at retailers that was developed by AI startup company Sentient. This technology is currently being used in their women’s boots section of their website. So far the CEO of Shoes.com says that he has seen evidence that the visual filter is actually increasing sales and he is looking to expand the search feature into other departments.
One company leading the market in visual search technology is Slyce. Their technology allows users to drop photos and pictures in the search box and receive results that are fitted to the original search image. This technology is available in an app for smartphones and other devices.
The technology they employ allows their search engine to instantly recognize objects then use that knowledge to recognize and connect consumers with similar items available at online retailers. The technology is so advanced users can even insert photos of any items they see and like in the real world into a search box to find exactly what they are shopping for.
