Back in November, we asked, have chatbots gone chic? Episode 42 of the podcast introduced you to Epytom, a digital styling service founded by Anastasia Sartan and Marianna Milkis-Edwards. The premise of the bot, which talks to you via Facebook messenger, is that you only need 40 pieces of clothing to have endless, effortless style—and that includes shoes and accessories. The chatbot uses artificial intelligence to understand and essentially quantify style so it can tell you exactly what to wear each day.
Today, we were so happy to learn the startup stole the spotlight at Facebook’s annual F8 conference. CEO and founder Anastasia Sartan was one of four panellists asked to speak on chatbots. You can watch the full panel discussion here.
Congrats! We can’t wait to see what’s next for this fashion bot ??
