TOP5 AI projects in retail

AI is applied in retail in many ways, from robots who assist in the store, to post-sale customer support. Here is TOP5 AI projects from Neuromation team.

  1. OSA Hybrid Platform

OSA Hybrid Platform (OSA HP) is a service created with the support of ECR, based on applied artificial intelligence, ensuring the constant availability of goods on the shelf (OSA — on-shelf availability) in the optimal quantity in real-time.

Neuromation.io has signed the letter of intent with the OSA Hybrid Platform. According to the letter of intent, Neuromation.io is to handle the preparation of the database of marked synthetic data as well as the development and optimization of the algorithm for recognition of goods on the basis of neural networks. The company also declared the possibility to implement object recognition on end-user devices without the need to connect to the server, and set the recognition accuracy index at least 95%.

2. Pepper Robot

In 2010, Japan’s SoftBank telecom operations partnered with French robotic manufacturer Aldebaran to develop Pepper, a humanoid robot that can interact with customers and “perceive human emotions.” Pepper is already popular in Japan, where it’s used as a customer service greeter and representative in 140 SoftBank mobile stores. According to Softbanks Robotics America, a pilot of the Pepper in California’s b88ta stores in both Palo Alto and Santa Monica yielded a 70% increase in foot traffic in Palo Alto, and 50% of Neo-pen sales in Santa Monica were attributed to Pepper.

3. Amazon Drones

A delivery system from Amazon designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones. Prime Air has great potential to enhance the services we already provide to millions of customers by providing rapid parcel delivery that will also increase the overall safety and efficiency of the transportation system.

4. Brilliant Manufacturing

Brilliant Manufacturing software is the synthesis of more than two decades of working with the world’s most recognized brands in manufacturing and GE plants. This software enables you to predict, adapt, and react more quickly and effectively than ever before. Link design, engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, distribution and services into one globally scalable intelligent system– spanning HMI/SCADA, MES and analytics.

5. Amazon Go

Amazon’s touted brick-and-mortar locations, known as Amazon Go, employ check-out-free technology that allow customers to shop and leave Customers use the Amazon Go app to check in, but thereafter the entire shopping experience is designed to be automated. Sensors track which objects customers pick up and put in their basket, and customers’ Amazon accounts are automatically charged after exiting the store.
