FórumIA – Artificial Intelligence in Portugal, held by INCoDe.2030, will present its first online session on February 11, with the topic “Artificial Intelligence in the Retail Sector”. This is the first of a series of online sessions, which will be held throughout the year, where we will seek to know, understand and learn from the developments of research and innovation in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Portugal.
In the first session of FórumIA, the aim is to analyze the use of AI technology in food retail, a sector that represents 11% of Portugal’s GDP, to get to know the results achieved, and to understand the challenges of AI application by large and small companies in the sector.
“Who are the customers? Where should the next stores be opened? How to obtain automatic information about stock preview and replenishment? How can we access the latest research developments?” These and many other questions are now answered in a business context through AI solutions that help companies to position themselves and be more competitive and efficient.
The online debate will be led by Alípio Jorge, Coordinator of AI Portugal 2030 and will feature the participation of the companies SONAE MC, LTP and Jerónimo Martins, the academic vision of a researcher from Fraunhofer&FEUP, Associação Portuguesa de Empresas de Distribuição (APED), as an association that aggregates distribution companies, and ASAE, which oversees part of the sector’s activity. The National Innovation Agency will also inform companies of support for the use of this type of technology to improve company processes.
Throughout 2021, this Forum will bring up the debate on the use of artificial intelligence in various areas such as the environment, public administration, employment, communication, among many others, always with stakeholders from the public, private and academic spheres.
The event is free, with prior registration here.
