32: Martin Strotton | “Alexa, what shall I wear today?”

Episode Description

Martin studied Psychology and Artificial Intelligence at university, and after graduation, he began working as a web developer. He began his career working for the U.S e-commerce startup Buy.com which, without really planning it, started his journey working in online retail. Martin later spent 8 years at a fast-growing online fashion company ASOS.com. Working at ASOS.com in more of a strategy role led him to his current project, Able Style, which is designed to help everyone get dressed better by helping them answer the question, “What shall I wear today?” In this week’s episode of The Artificial Podcast Nick chats with Martin Strotton. With more than two decades worth of experience in e-commerce and the online fashion industry Martin shares some valuable insights into the evolution of e-commerce and how technologies like AI and Voice are rapidly innovating the space. Martin shares some details about a product that he has been developing, Able Style, and how using the power of Alexa will help answer a question we all ask ourselves daily, “What shall I wear today?” Nick asks Martin about what it has been like developing Able Style for Alexa with so many moving parts, and how he has overcome them with developer tools and new features for Alexa changing almost weekly. Martin also shares what he thinks the most valuable opportunity is when it comes to voice assistant technology and provides some tips for developers who are looking to build a product using Alexa.
