Consolidated Reference of Machine Learning Applications – Retail

Continuing the prior post, we are moving on to Retail. Woo Hoo. As i stated in the prior blog; This came out of at Fast.ai ppt that can be found here. Granted they only provided the list.

This post will be made of a lot of quotes and references, that is kind of the point, very little original content will come from me as I am not the creator of much data science, just a user of it, though i am sure i will add commentary especially in retail as i have some practical experience in a few areas.

The funny thing about solving a data science problem is that their are many ways to solve it, so i don’t expect this to be 100% comprehensive, i try to find what appears to be a canonical solution, though that does not mean you cannot stuff everything into a neural net and close your eyes, which is what everyone appears to be doing these days…

I have a few ethics slides in my data science talk, but the fast.ai gang hit way harder than I typically do. I admit, shock is a good way to wake people into thinking about what they are doing.

In their ML Applications deck they have a list of applications by industry, below I have them listed out and what I hope is to present either an elevator pitch of what each one is, or and executive overview of each and links to more info. This post will be made of a lot of quotes and references, that is kind of the point, no original content will come from me as I am not the creator of much data science, just a user of it, though i am sure i will add commentary. This will be a series of blogs posts, and clearly each post has the potential for being very long even with just a brief summary and a few links.
