#artificialintelligence

According to a study by Harvard Business Review (HBR), Bengaluru has emerged among the top five cities in the world of AI, ranked at fifth position – and has the second-largest AI talent pool in the world. The other cities that topped the list include San Francisco, New York, Boston, and Seattle. Besides Bengaluru, other cities in India include New Delhi, Hyderabad, and Mumbai, ranked at 18th, 19th and 27th positions, respectively. In this study, the researchers highlighted the 50 cities with AI talent pools worldwide and evaluated them using a TIDE framework (i.e., talent pool, investments, diversity of talent, the evolution of the country's digital foundations). The researchers said that these factors collectively give companies a way to prioritise their AI talent sourcing choices by scoring the various locations on the concentration, quality, and diversity of the talent pool.


Retail stores tap into AI to integrate online, offline buyer experiences

#artificialintelligence

Large retail chains are seeking to enhance customer satisfaction by using artificial intelligence (AI) tools such as machine learning and computer vision to study consumer behavior online and in physical stores, in an effort to offer them the best products and experiences. Bengaluru and San Francisco based AI solutions provider Algonomy has deployed an AI-based decision engine called Xen AI for Pantaloons, a multi-brand retail chain owned by Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Ltd. Xen AI selects the most optimal experience for every interaction in real-time, based on the customer's profile and stage in the buying journey. For instance, if a lady customer browses for a peach dress online and later visits the store to try it, a store associate uses an app to assist her better based on her preferences, behavioral data, searches and past purchases, said Bhavna Sachar, director, product marketing at Algonomy. The idea is to use AI-based personalization to offer tailored omnichannel experiences to customers, she said.
