New Stock Photo Site Utilizes Past Behavioral Data from Millions of Designers For Curated Library of Tens of Millions of Photos and VideosNASHVILLE, Tenn., April 12, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Dreamstime, the world's largest community in stock photography, announced today the launch of Megapixl.com, a new website that utilizes machine learning to offer more refined stock image choices based on past user behaviors. This artificial intelligence (AI) utilizes data garnered from all of the Dreamstime sites regarding which content is the most relevant and suitable for the individual user.
Dreamstime analyzes user-driven Big Data that is collected into its main AI from across its library of websites and across multiple electronic devices. It then leverages that information to recommend Megapixl.com images to designers based on the actions of other aggregated user decisions. The end result is a more engaging and relevant user experience. The system "learns" user preferences over time, and will give higher priority ratings to content that is most suitable to the individual user.
Available on a subscription basis, Megapixl.com features the most attractive stock image subscriptions in the industry. The initial collection on Megapixl.com is curated based on editor's feedback and customer behaviors that rate images and place them within certain ranks in the collection. Once the site is launched, the machine learning platform will take gathered user data into account and offer refinements to the Dreamstime.com main site. Content on the site includes photos, vector art, and video content representing several categories including abstract, business, people, editorial, 2D & 3D Animation, Video Production Elements, Technology, and Travel.
"By launching MegaPixl we give users access to an incredible collection that is curated by humans and then further improved and customized by machine learning tools that learn past behaviors to make dynamic recommendations," said Serban Enache, CEO and co-founder, Dreamstime. "The initial collection on Megapixl is already curated because we've accounted for user's actions so we know how images will be rated and placed within the collection. Megapixl is designed as a first stop for designers because we are effectively using the designer community to help itself by basing the collection on designer behaviors. Users will come to the site to find the right image quickly – giving them more time to focus on their designs."
The site will offer a 30 Day Free Trial that will provide new customers with the opportunity to experience the difference of the new image gallery available on Megapixl.com.
