This will help redefine the way Flipkart's customers and sellers connect with the brand, including the manner in which they browse and make purchasing decisions, the statement added.

"Image science has the potential to revolutionise the way in which information is consumed. From customers searching for products 'visually' to our sellers uploading their inventory on our platform through one picture, it is all possible today with 'computer vision' or deep learning technology," Ranjan said.

The charter of Chaudhury's team is to make this very vision a reality, he added. Prior to Flipkart, Chaudhury has worked with the Machine Intelligence team of Google Research at their Mountain View campus.

Previously, he has worked with Advanced Technology Group of Adobe Systems in San Jose and holds over 20 patents.
