Session 3: 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Topic: How AI is boosting the New Retail Era

With the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, the competitive landscape of many industries may have dramatic changes. To realize the visions of “New Retail”, what kind of strategic thinking should retailers have, how to choose the right tools and solutions to effectively solve business problems, improve operational efficiency, strengthen customer relationships, enhance organizational capabilities, and overall avoid making wrong investment decision by blindly chasing the wind?

This talk will cover the four most important AI technologies and their applications in the retail industry: Image recognition, Natural speech processing, Internet of Things, and Consumer Big Data. Combined with the description of several integrated scenarios (such as unmanned stores), we can understand more of the current AI trends and limitations, the innovative values brought by these applications, and how companies can smartly develop this critical competitiveness. 

Speaker: Mr. Jim Sun, Head of Strategic Accounts, Asia for People Squared Solutions
