2:05pm: Optimizing Personalization Using Machine Learning & AI w/ Accenture
Retail has long pursued the “holy grail” of product offers and deals which result in both happier customers, and net sales or margin lift. For customers, this equates to Personalization – getting the products they want, for a better price, easier and faster. For the Retailer, this equates to an optimization problem. The Accenture team will talk about how we recently solved this challenge in production for a major US Pharmacy, using Machine Learning and AI.
