The (new) Relationship between Humans and Artificial Intelligence

In the previous blog posts, we have explored how machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are at the heart of the next industrial revolution towards an algorithmic economy. We discussed how these technologies reshape businesses by automating up to 99% of all operational decisions.

How Artificial Intelligence Optimizes Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty (Part 2)

In the previous post,we explored why people find thinking in probabilities difficult and how our world, despite our daily experiences telling us otherwise, is ultimately governed by probabilities. We then discussed how predictions for business decisions also need to be based on predicting probabilities and probability distributions, such as the one…

How Artificial Intelligence Optimizes Decisions in Uncertainty (Part 1)

IN Machine Learning — 29 March, 2017

Harvard Business Review recently published an article called “You Can’t Make Good Predictions Without Embracing Uncertainty” about the impact of uncertainty on making good decisions. While the article focused more on strategic decisions and how to incorporate uncertainties into the various influencing factors to come to a better decision, the…

Machine Learning and Automating Decisions - Algorithms Define Action

IN Machine Learning — 17 March, 2017

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (read previous blog article) are poised to disrupt industries one by one. In fact, early adopters in retail are already seeing substantial benefits from using machine learning and artificial intelligence in their daily operations in areas such as replenishment and price optimization. Peter Sondergaard,…

EuroShop 2017 – Retail’s next big thing: Artificial Intelligence

EuroShop 2017 in Düsseldorf was five days of stimulating discussions and lots of interest in our machine learning solutions.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

In the day and age of Big Data, more and more data are being acquired, stored and readied for processing. Traditional means of dealing with these enormous amounts of data face significant challenges and, the same time, computing resources become more financially attractive, including cloud services, Software or Platform as a Service (SaaS/PaaS).

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning - the new Era in Retail?

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are quickly becoming a key priority for innovative Retailers looking to secure a competitive advantage in 2017. But what are they exactly? How mature is the technology? The modern customer expects a consistent Customer Experience and demand their products right here, right now, but retailers are…

Physicists Disrupting Retail - Part 2

In my last blog I wrote about how physicists are ideally suited to become the cornerstone of digital businesses and how the emerging field of Data Science gives us a new home in the private sector. In this article I would like illustrate this with a real-world example: Replenishment of perishable and non-perishable goods, all products at a given…

Physicists Disrupting Retail - Part 1

From CERN...

A short while ago a recent article in Wired described how physicists are about to rule Silicon Valley. The opening of the article resonated strongly with me when I also used to tackle difficult research questions at the world’s most renown laboratories for particle physics: CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and the Fermi National Laboratory…
