Artificial Intelligence in #Retail – 10 Present and Future Use Cases | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In this article, we cover a variety of examples in which AI is being integrated in the retail industry, broken down into the following sub-categories: Sales and CRM Applications, Customer Recommendations, Manufacturing, Logistics and Delivery, Payments and Payment Services

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: some of the use cases may be far fetched but still give a good idea of what is possible (not necessarily what is useful...). Good to know nevertheless.

Learning from the best - 54 #marketing #technology stacks are reviewed from The Stackies 2018 HT @chiefmartech  | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

If you’re new to this, a “marketing stack” is the collection of software that a marketing team uses to ply their trade. The Stackies is a fun awards program at the MarTech conference where we invite marketers to send in a single slide that illustrates their marketing stack in some conceptual way.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: learning from what best in class companies do is always good thing. This award from chiefmartech surfaces the best marketing technology "Stacks" - the list of technologies and solutions that marketing team at Cisco, IBM and others use to do their work - provides insights into the tools that companies leverage to do their work. And with over 6500 solutions in the marketing horizon, finding the "right" set of tools is so difficult that mapping yourself to what others are doing may be a good starting point!

WHY IT MATTERS: store of the future will focus on customer experience and technologies such as IOT are key enablers to make the enhanced experience seamless and complete. This research document classifies applications for IOT into 3 categories, track, intuit behaviour and deliver experience. I find this classification and the examples in the document very useful.

A New View Into Marketing Technology growthVerse was a great tool to visualize the complex world of #digital #marketing - but unfortunately is not available to general public anymore @accel HT @kaykas | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The Marketing technology category is growing in leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, our most concise view into the category was built in 2011.

This Tech Would Have Spotted the Secret Chinese Chip in Seconds via @IEEE_Spectrum | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

So why isn’t this system in widespread use? After all, much of it has been available since 2014. (Tehranipoor even described some in his 2017 article for IEEE Spectrum about the dangers of cloned chips.) “Sometimes a technology is ready, but it’s not used by companies because an attack hasn’t been seen to be real,” Tehranipoor says. This attack might be enough to change that perception, he says.  

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: as the article states, technology sometimes exists but most don'T feel this is an important issue - until it is too late or catastrophic event occurs. We can extrapolate this concern to pretty much everything regarding cybersecurity these days...

Future retail store may look more like a large vending machine or Sears counter : Walmart eyes pickup-only store in former Dominick’s HT @O_Laborne

Future retail store may look more like a large vending machine or Sears counter : Walmart eyes pickup-only store in former Dominick’s HT @O_Laborne | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Proposed facility part of push to boost online grocery fulfillment. Walmart representative said the concept marks a different grocery pickup approach and would represent its largest pickup-only site. The location also would be Walmart’s first stand-alone, drive-up grocery facility in Illinois. The building would have no customer access and house 41,700 square feet of inventory space. Signs would direct customers driving through the lot to one of three canopied pickup bays, where they would park in a designated space and have their groceries loaded into their vehicle. Customers would order their groceries as usual via the Walmart Grocery app or website and select a pickup time in one-hour windows. Pickup trips and parking spots would be coordinated to avoid congestion.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: when Walmart gets into something, you should watch out. Here it seems they are exploring options for grocery fulfillment and delivery - as everyone is trying to figure out what will customer prefer and where to make money. But the solution feels like back to the future: the concept looks like a sears pickup counter from the old days! The article also mentions some delivery options being tested by Walmart including autonomous cars and crowdsourcing.

Intranet usage is below 20%, as opposed to social networks at 60% says 2018 #survey on Employee Adoption of Collaboration Tools @Altimeter #intranet #digitalTransformation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Enterprises use many collaboration tools, from intranets to project management platforms. We surveyed 2000 employees to understand how they use these tools.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: digital transformation in enterprise remains slow to catch on and this survey result shows that Intranet solutions remain under utilized. Having seen many of them, I can understand why: lots of useless, and out of date documents, no one really in charge of maintenance, no search or bad search engines, etc. Key learning from this chart:

- if you update your intranet, build something simple and make sure people use it

- have a corporate social network, it is useful and people use it

"Smart Phygital" the #buzzword at #PRW18 that bundles #digitalTransformation concepts and a new reality: there is no difference between #ecommerce and physical store commerce: it is just commerce #... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Une enquête menée en 2018 par 421 Research pour Ayden auprès de 5 033 Européens (Royaume-Uni, Allemagne, Espagne, France et Pays nordiques), rend compte de l'importance de la vision "Smart Phygital" pour les acteurs de la distribution. Comme le montre notre graphique, les attentes des consommateurs vis-à-vis de l'expérience d'achat se concentrent autour de 3 axes : la personnalisation, la stratégie omnicanale et l'innovation digitale.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: too many buzzwords, too many concepts are increasing the confusion of retailers and merchants. This year at the Paris Retail Week it was "smart phygital" a concept that means nothing more than the fact that eCommerce is morphing into retail commerce, driving changes in stores to go from mini-warehouses to an experience destinations where consumers will get product showrooms, advice and support. And all of that supported by digital technology and requiring huge digital transformation of processes and people.

This AI Drone Can Be Controlled by Your Eyes - opens opportunities in many fields including disabilities #AI #drone #enhancedVision | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Piloting a drone or an unmanned vehicle by only using your gaze sounds like a scene out of a science fiction movie, but now it’s a reality. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, and collaborators developed a deep learning system that uses NVIDIA GPUs to enable a user to control a drone by simply directing their eyes towards where they want to steer.
