Join us at Lifion for an engaging presentation aboutAI Product Development & the Future of Personalization.

The retail industry is undergoing a massive disruption. Customers seem to prefer the convenience of eCommerce over the experience of in-store shopping. Digital marketing & personalization are far from achieving optimal levels of relevancy & timeliness.

However, the sector has done a fantastic job of collecting data at every customer touch point. An average retailer with online presence & physical stores has data from -- in-store purchases, online user behavior, social engagement, cross-device/ cross-channel journey etc. Add to the mix, external data such as trends, preferences by demography, geography, & others.

The bigger challenge at this point is to make use of this data. Good news is that the world has made tremendous progress in analyzing big data using deep learning & AI technologies. Learn about advances made in personalization, visual commerce, friction-less omni-channel experience & virtual reality that a fashion brand or retailer could use to enter the new era of retail.
