AI Experts: David Skerrett & Paul Winsor
AI’s impact on Retail is about predictive intelligence that helps humans effectively query the future.
AI’S INFLUENCE ON RETAIL
AI’s rapid reshaping of the retail industry is being fueled by machine learning and data science. These new technologies are positively influencing the decision-making processes across all business units when it comes to predictions, targeting and relevancy. This makes it useful for the entire retail chain – from the retailers to the supply chain and more importantly the consumer.
So, it should come as no surprise that investments in AI by the retail segment are exceedingly high. In fact, investments will exceed USD 15 billion by 2025*. Virtual display rooms that showcase hyper-personalized products, product demand forecasting by day / store / product, and bespoke targeting are just some of the day-to-day features you will come to expect.
But many are experiencing the AI revolution in retail already. Right now, early-adopter retailers have embraced machine learning to help them make more accurate predictions and better business decisions in an effort to serve their customers better, ultimately driving up the bottom line.
In this edition of the Good, The Bad and The Ugly, we’ll share anecdotal examples of what has worked and what hasn’t as artificial intelligence embeds itself into the foundation of your technology stack. Hear from Paul Winsor, General Manager of Retail at DataRobot, and David Skerrett, an award-winning digital transformation expert, as they present live use cases of AI in the retail industry.We’ll give you the opportunity to vote on whether you think these are good or bad, and we’ll be asking you to send us your own examples which will be added to the discussion.
