Team Summary

Huew was founded by Anand Subramanian (PhD (CS), Stony Brook University, NY) and Vijay Gabale (PhD (CS), IIT Bombay) with a mission to apply deep technology to solve large scale consumer internet problems. Anand and Vijay both worked at IBM Research Labs, Bangalore in their previous jobs and were fascinated by the capabilities of machines understanding visual data (photos and videos). They foresaw that the online fashion industry (where photos play a pivotal role in customer decision making) can be tremendously improved with the application of deep computer vision technology. Born out of this vision is Huew, which provides a super easy and fun fashion search and discovery experience to users.
