Cloudpick Autonomous Store (Cashier-Free Store)

Cloudpick Autonomous Store (Cashier-Free Store)

Cloudpick Autonomous store is a smart retail technical solution focused on the retail market created by Cloudpick technology. This solution, based on computer vision, machine learning and AIoT sensing technology, through original behavior recognition and product learning algorithm engine, accurately identifies goods and customers’ shopping behavior, and provide "grab and go" frictionless shopping experience to customers.

Deep Learning Platform

Deep Learning Platform

Deci’s deep learning platform automatically gears up your neural networks, to become top-performing production-grade solutions on any hardware, at scale. Deci's platform features the Automated Neural Architecture Construction (AutoNAC) technology. AutoNAC is a seamless procedure that offers a substantial performance boost (throughput/latency) to existing deep learning models–while preserving their accuracy.

SparkCognition SparkPredict®

SparkCognition SparkPredict®

SparkPredict® uses sophisticated algorithms to prevent asset failures, reduce maintenance costs, and improve system efficiency. Next-generation AI-driven prognostics learn from sensor and control system data to better understand the future behavior of each asset. The algorithms then raise alerts for sub-optimal operations and identify impending failures long before they occur.

ThunderSoft Smart Retail Solution

ThunderSoft Smart Retail Solution

The ThunderSoft Smart Retail System, developed with Intel® Edge Insights for Retail software and built on Intel® technology, enables smart customer analysis for retailers. Using a simple, user-friendly app, retailers can identify customer flow patterns, optimize staff allocation, and track consumer behavior for a more relevant, tailored customer experience.

AI Superstream Series: NLP In Production

AI Superstream Series: NLP In Production

David Talby chief technology officer at John Snow Labs, will discuss how natural language processing is one of the most widely used branches of machine learning, with applications ranging from the widespread and high impact to the cutting edge. David will specifically share his experience with automated medical question answering in practice.

What Members Are Saying

D8AI

“D8AI provides tailor-made Enterprise Intelligence Bot AI applications with proprietary NLP engines for enterprise, delivering both cloud and on-premises deployments. Our customers’ hardware selections vary, the Intel AI Builders program has helped us to select the optimized configuration for their hardware specifications. Thanks to oneDNN enabled TensorFlow on Intel 2nd Gen Xeon Scalable CPU systems, the optimization of D8AI’s proprietary NLP models were highly effective. Especially, with the assistance of Intel's dedicated engineers throughout the whole process. Our customers can now benefit from the better performance on Intel's hardware platforms while using our NLP based AI applications. Thus, we will be recommending deployment on Intel 2nd Gen Xeon Scalable CPU systems or later, both in the cloud or on-premises for optimized performance.”

Synergies

“The collaboration with Intel AI builder program had truly been wonderful. Through a few simple meetings, some change in hardware 2 weeks of work from Intel’s team. Intel was able to optimize our AutoML function from a hardware perspective, using the full capacity of Intel’s hardware. Through Intel’s Xeon CPU, we were able to get up to a 200% increase in performance in certain conditions. The key benefit this provides us is the capability to better utilize our resource. Now we are looking forward to further serving our customers.”
