Several mobile apps have this feature, such as ones from Google, Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Pinterest, WayFair…the list goes on. You may have been wondering how these services work. If you guessed that recent advances in machine learning are driving this, you would be right. But that’s just part of the story.
