The Next Big Thing in E-commerce? Shopping with PAI

Technology has transformed many areas of our everyday life in the last decade. One of the industries where rapid change is most evident is retail. In less than a generation, we’ve gone from a society that does most of our shopping in person to one that is very used to purchasing everything from a smartphone app.

The changes in our shopping habits also mean that retailers are changing the way they advertise and promote their products. Social media influencers and video reviews are more important than ever, and this year we are seeing the rise of avatar influencers — digital humans completely created by companies to represent their brand and products. PAI technology is perfect for this use case — minimizing the resources needed to create these digital influencers and automatically generating interactive content that can attract consumers 24/7.

Recently, ObEN collaborated with TMall — one of China’s largest e-commerce live streaming platforms, to explore the use of PAI in next-gen retail. The team created the PAI of Mango TV Channel host Li Rui and used him to introduce products and interact with shoppers during a livestreamed program. Li Rui’s PAI even played short quiz games where shoppers who answered questions correctly were rewarded with coupons and prizes. So forget buying from a retailer’s website — this is the next generation of the shopping experience — shopping as entertainment!

Have a great Fourth of July! See you in the next issue of PAI Updates!
