How To Create An AI System That Will Browse The Web Like A Human User
by Albert Au Yeung, Machine Learning Lead Engineer, Zwoop
Zwoop aims at assisting eCommerce customers to find the deals for desired products, and to automate the whole registration and checkout process.
This requires a system that can identify and compare products from any eCommerce website, understand the availability of the different variations, and know how to navigate through e-commerce websites. In this talk, Albert will discuss the process and challenges of applying a wide range of AI and machine learning technologies to create a system that can browse the Web like a human user. He will also discuss how AI can help to automate many other processes in daily life.
