During the Seminar, Daisy Intelligence, along with Trent Tucker, Assistant Professor at the College of Business and Economics, will present the case study, “Daisy Intelligence: Bringing artificial intelligence to the retail end of the food value chain.” The case study will explore the future of global food retailing and the opportunities that artificial intelligence (A.I.) brings to the table.
Tucker commented that the Seminar “is an opportunity for the entire food supply chain, (farmers, processors, food services, retailers) to gather in a dynamic environment to examine and discuss current and critical issues facing the food supply system, including advancements in retail technology like those provided by innovative Canadian companies like Daisy.”
As part of the research for the case study, Tucker interviewed multiple retail executives, including research and analytics executives at some of Canada’s largest retailers.
“The food economy is an exceptionally competitive environment characterized by incredibly tight profit margins,” said Gary Saarenvirta, CEO of Daisy Intelligence. “This case study clearly illustrates the power of A.I. to help retailers make better decisions about everything from merchandising to promotional strategies, enabling them to increase the profitability of the retail food business.”
