AI Useful Results for Retailers

Article on retailtouchpoints July 10th on AI and Retail.

Quick Brief / Summary

  • AI is coming
  • Retailers exploring and new startups like Verneek have formed. We’ve covered Verneek and their terrific pilot they finished with Sprouts. Very successful.
  • They include some nice data predictions — Global ecommerce sales, representing 22% of all retail sales, could increase to $5.4 trillion in 2026, from $3.3 trillion today, according to Morgan Stanley.
  • Four Areas Most Likely to “Bear Fruit”
    • Hyper-personalized shopping. For example, Verneek has the Quin Shopping AI. Quin helps shoppers make better and faster decisions throughout their online or in-store journeys — fulfilling any sophisticated shopping request — ranging from finding available product assortments or recipes that match a whole suite of health- or budget-related constraints — to general health and customer service. It lets you search both ways simultaneously for products “are” and “are not”
    • Automated catalog and product descriptions
    • Automatic price optimization
    • Assistive customer service.  Anyone else noticed how customer service has basically gone to the dogs since real people that understand and can be understood went away?

NVIDIA has its toolkit for AI and has been pushing its avatar AI. While not as creepy looking as earlier iterations, it still lacks texture and depth and is hampered by an AI that periodically doesn’t know what to say.

The nicest feature of NVIDIA we think is the ability to instantly speak in 20 different languages. If you have ever watched Star Trek you have seen the Universal Translator.

At the recent National Restaurant Show we had AI Restaurant Ordering via Avatar in our booth. SapientX.
