Amazon has unveiled a new feature in its app which finds clothes by analysing an uploaded photo.
The AI-powered feature, being dubbed the Shazam for fashion, searches the Amazon site for the closest match to a customers’ photo. StyleSnap uses “computer vision” and “deep learning” to identify fashion apparel pieces in photos.
