At Traverz we are developing a paradigm-shifting search agent mechanism, involving a whole new search experience driven by AI (ML/NLP/CV). Our first application is in product search, essentially replacing the standard ‘filter’ component in marketplaces and e-commerce sites. The result is a virtual agent that helps you to discover the right products for you – by helping you explore choices, stimulating you to consider alternatives, automatically processing your (potentially conflicting) preferences, and engaging with you through multiple channels (web, mobile, messenger) using natural language.
The first development phases have been completed, and an MVP for a fully functional marketplace is in place. This enables us to test all the core concepts, before expanding our scope to the development of front-end components and a service backbone that we can integrate and deliver to marketplace / e-commerce players.
