Peekabuy was founded by Henry Kang in 2013 to solve the problem his wife Shawna brought to him: “What can I wear with this?” Henry, who has a PhD in Robotics and Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, assembled a team of engineers and fashionistas to tackle this problem. The team has over 30 years’ experience in machine learning. Over half of the team have earned their PhDs from the Computer Science program at Carnegie Mellon and bring in previous experience from Google, Microsoft Research, Conviva, Opera Mobile.
