Modeling intent of the user using Probabilistic Machine Learning

Understanding the user’s intent can help the product team dramatically improve the user’s experience. Be it adding the right products to a shopping cart, stocks to the portfolio or packages to a software stack, the user’s intent drives the choices and products added. When designing recommendation systems, modelling intent is non-trivial. The intent behind the action is hidden. This talk is about … more

Product matching is the challenge of examining two different representations of retail products (think items that you see on e-commerce websites) and determining whether they both refer to the same product. Tackling this problem requires a mix of NLP (to deal with text data), computer vision (to deal with product images), ontology management and more (to ingest a host of other signals on offer). more
