3 Week POC : Azure OpenAI Use cases for Retail Sector

Nous Infosystems Inc.

AI is revolutionizing all industries. With its rich experience, Nous has identified over 200+ use cases for Retail alone. Come up with your use case and Nous will demo it for you using AI.

AI is revolutionizing the traditional approach of conducting business for all industries alike. However, each industry is unique in terms of its challenges and requirements. Hence, despite the underlying technology remaining the same, industry specific solutions tailored to the use case deliver real value.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming the retail sector in many ways. From optimizing inventory management and supply chain, to enhancing customer experience and personalization, to creating new business models and opportunities, AI is reshaping the way retailers operate and compete.To leverage Azure for this offering, NOUS leverages Azure OpenAI to create tailored AI solutions for the Retail industry.

Below is a brief snapshot from our extensive use-cases of AI in retail:

  • AI for inventory management and supply chain: AI can help retailers achieve this by providing accurate demand forecasting, automated replenishment, dynamic pricing, and intelligent logistics.
    • Demand forecasting: AI can improve demand forecasting by analyzing large amounts of data from various sources, such as sales history, weather, seasonality, trends, promotions, and customer behavior.
    • Automated replenishment: AI can optimize automated replenishment by using demand forecasts to determine the optimal quantity and timing of orders, as well as the best suppliers and delivery routes. AI can also monitor inventory levels and adjust orders in real time based on changes in demand or supply conditions.
    • Dynamic pricing: AI can enable dynamic pricing by analyzing data from multiple sources, such as competitors' prices, customer segments, purchase history, loyalty programs, and online behavior.
    • Intelligent logistics: AI can enhance intelligent logistics by using data from sensors, GPS, cameras, and other devices to track and optimize the movement of goods and vehicles. AI can also use natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision to automate tasks such as scanning barcodes, reading invoices, and verifying deliveries.
  • AI for customer experience and personalization: AI can help retailers achieve this by offering personalized recommendations, tailored promotions, conversational agents, and augmented reality.

A typical POC program plan will look like the following:

1st Week:

  • Identification of AI use case along with the Client
  • Detailed discussion with the Client for the Use case and Problem Statements
  • Architecture for the Solution
  • Define Data Requirements and Readiness

2nd Week:

  • Development of the AI Model
  • Train the Model with Data identified in the previous week
  • Test the Model and Fine Tune the same
  • Initial Demo to the Client

3rd Week:

  • Final Demo to the Client, incorporating Client feedback from the 1st Demo
  • Document the learning and Recommendations for next steps
