how can retailers bring the I, into ai?

Retailers need to up their productivity and compete harder than ever before.

In our recent BRC survey, retailers cited technology as the key area they are investing in, in response to market pressures. We’re also hearing that it almost has to have AI in the title, to really pique the interest of Boards.

But what is AI? And what are we really talking about when we refer to AI in retail?

Our Head of Insight and Analytics, Rachel Lund, talks to Andrew Fowkes, Head of Retail Centre of Excellence at SAS UK & Ireland, the AI experts.

Andrew explains how retailers can bring the intelligence into AI, looking at how retailers are already using and benefiting from AI technology. He also offers advice for retailers taking the first step, and where retailers can invest to get the best results and add real value to their business.


We’re holding a member roundtable and dinner with SAS on Tuesday 12 March. If you’d like to chat direct with Andrew and others about how you can maximise the opportunities offered by AI, book your place online.

Please do note places are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
