You were chosen as this month’s Innovator Client. What does being an Innovator mean to you?
We take great pride in being on the leading edge of consumer behavior when it comes to how we engage with brands. We are changing the landscape of how our brand partners connect with shoppers. Over 3 Billion images are shared on social media every day. We take this behavior and put it to good use.
No one likes to brag about their business, but if you HAD TO . . .
Slyce – is the largest deployed player in this emerging field of image recognition. AI is the new horizon for retail and we support some of the biggest like Home Depot, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Best Buy. Too much?
We learn from our mistakes, especially in business. Give us some words of wisdom.
When you are selling air and the core technology seems to improve and change daily we make nothing but mistakes. That may be overstated but we continually learn, train and improve our core technology to create best practices.

My father told me to take as much psychology and public speaking that I could in school. Didn’t register at the time but I think about that all the time with what I do day to day.

Vacation – beach – weekend, so I don’t get any calls or emails.
