Commerce, reinvented. The AI revolution in commerce.
Artificial intelligence is fast transforming commerce, providing spectacular lift, and revolutionizing what we think of as commerce today. Yet simply hiring a few data scientists rarely delivers on the promise.
In this pre-dinner talk, we’ll explore the three top areas where AI is having greatest impact and what it means for business, and how business executives should steer AI initiatives in commerce. This includes balancing domain expertise, such as category management and merchandising, with the data science required to continuously optimize commerce processes. Giving practical examples, this talk is designed to prepare senior business executives to lead new, or focus their existing AI initiatives in areas with the greatest return, and on the techniques required for success.
