•  CNBC reports that Klarna, "the Swedish 'buy now, pay later' pioneer said Tuesday that its new design would help users find the items they want by using more advanced AI recommendation algorithms, while merchants will be able to target customers more effectively."

According to the company, Klarna "is looking to take on big U.S. tech giants with its own artificial intelligence-powered image recognition tool to help people find products they want to buy.

The feature … will enable users to point their phone at an item of clothing or an electronics product and find results for similar items directly within the Klarna app."
