eBay acquires ExpertMaker


In its bid to improve its online marketplace platform and enhance user experience, eBay has acquired ExpertMaker. ExpertMaker is a Sweden-based startup specialising in using artificial intelligence and machine learning to help organise and analyse big data. ExpertMaker can help eBay declutter its site and make it easier for people to find what they’re looking for, among its 900 million listings. ExpertMaker’s artificial intelligence software platform can analyse eBay’s massive amount of noisy data and extract hidden value in the data. This structured data foundation will allow eBay to make its search engine more targeted and improve overall user experience. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
