How To Leverage Machine Learning in Retail Stores for Automated Stock Replenishment

By Priyabrata Dash | Machine Learning

Have you ever wondered, how does a retail store keep track of its shelves? A retail store spread across a large area requires a lot of operational staff to manage the shelves. Replenishing the stock is one of those essential chores that ensure that the business runs without any halt. In this blog post, we are going to talk about how technology can help in predicting when does a store shelf need to replenish itself. We are going to showcase automated stock replenishment as a case scenario for applying machine learning in retail industry.

Beat the Rush Hour Traffic with Machine Learning using Tensorflow

By Shyam Purkayastha | Machine Learning

TensorFlow is one of Google’s flagship machine learning toolkits. Originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization, Tensorflow found adoption in conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research. Subsequently, it was open sourced and is now available as a general purpose ML toolkit for a wide variety of applications. In this blog post, we will show you how to use the kNN routines of Tensorflow to solve a fundamental problem of city commuters, the traffic jams.

Build a real-time recommendation engine with IBM Bluemix and PubNub – Part 2

By Shyam Purkayastha | Machine Learning

This post is the follow up to my previous post in which I presented a real-time recommendation engine project around predicting duration of travel. In that post, I explored the factors affecting travel duration and looked at how, with the help of historical data, you can build an algorithm for predicting travel duration for a given route. Now, I will conclude the project by building an application that can help users plan a trip by providing real-time travel recommendations based on current traffic and weather conditions.
