What We Think

We stand at a pivotal juncture in the evolutionary trajectory of AI, which now includes generative AI. Today, we witness the unfolding of transformative applications that harness this technology to accelerate content creation and distill key insights in and from various data formats, including text, video and even computer code. Now, developers are unveiling innovative generative AI-powered applications for enterprise users, and we eagerly look forward to the multiplicative power of combining generative AI with machine learning. This integration holds the promise of empowering retailers and enterprises to uncover trends and opportunities within their data through interactive, human-like conversations, eliminating the need for static dashboards crafted by dedicated teams. The horizon is set with numerous possibilities as we navigate this dynamic landscape of AI evolution.

With the NextGen Commerce conference being held at such an inflection point in retail, both for consumers and for retail technology, we excited to hear about how retail and technology leaders are considering and using AI.
