Augmenting Human Experts Using Deep Learning
Deep learning is overtaking traditional machine learning techniques for several use cases in e-commerce. At the same time, it is opening up others that were not possible before. This talk will explore a handful of both types of use cases, such as the pricing of items with deep neural nets, classification of product images with transfer learning, modelling users as images to leverage convolutional neural nets (CNNs), generative adversarial networks (GANs) to generate pictures of watches, and more.
