LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FaceCake, a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) for highly personalized visual commerce, is debuting AVA, which represents a groundbreaking advancement in the realm of iCommerce, standing as the first of its kind to transcend traditional search methods and usher in an era of proactive product discovery. AVA (Acquire, Validate, Adapt) marks the introduction of FaceCake’s next-generation AI and AR Stylist, an adaptive, interactive personal shopper that functions independently or on any eCommerce site. This collaboration has expedited AVA’s deployment to Google Cloud. The initiative, facilitated by Wursta Corporation, a Premier Google Cloud Partner, showcases the cloud’s capability for scalable solutions. FaceCake’s CEO, Linda Smith, will introduce AVA at the Google Next ’24 event at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas, from April 9-11, 2024.

AVA, a cutting-edge AI personal shopper and stylist, engages digital consumers in a manner previously unseen; with its sophisticated multimodal interface, it initiates interaction with shoppers, disrupting the conventional chat UIs where users are typically the ones to initiate conversation. Powered by FaceCake’s novel AI, AVA offers responsive recommendations tailored to the user’s preferences and leverages FaceCake’s AR platform, allowing shoppers to virtually Try-On recommended products during a live session. AVA can facilitate AR Try-Ons and generate suggestions directly from any webpage. This capability, combined with FaceCake’s expertise in visual data, provides real-time feedback and advice to users even during the Try-On process, delivering an unparalleled level of personalization that redefines the online shopping experience.

“It’s very exciting to see FaceCake’s AVA bring to market exactly what iCommerce was meant to be with AVA’s immersive blend of interactive AI and AR,” said FaceCake’s Founder and CEO, Linda Smith. “Our collaboration with Google Cloud and Wursta played a pivotal role in its realization.”
