Retailers give Shopin outstanding approval ratings

Shopin’s Eran Eyal covers some of the highlights of the past year ranging from success with retailers, branded tokens to the Retail Intelligence Data Engine.

It's been a powerful year. We're blessed with a talented team, approval from retailers, testimonials and multiple product launches. We've got some more great news coming in the next few weeks.”

— Eran Eyal, CEO and Founder of Shopin

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shopin continues to make strides with its products to decentralize the purchase data and technological advantages of retail giants, and to bring consumers closer to controlling their data.

Eran Eyal, CEO and founder of Shopin, recounts: “It’s been a year filled with challenges and opportunities to rise beyond our original path to execution as well as mature our team… and thus our mindset and go-to-market strategies.”

Eyal goes on to list some of the headliner moments of the past year since last year’s TGE:

Shopin saved Japanese participants over $5MM through a token swap. When the team learned that one of the syndicates had their personal wallet hacked, leading to the theft of over 10% of the distributed tokens, they saw that over 3,000 supporters of Shopin’s vision would lose their funds. As a result, Shopin did a token swap, with the help of their partner BlockWell, to bring justice and integrity to a challenging situation (1-9)

Shopin elevated its team with a new CTO, Georgi Gospodinov, PhD. Gospodinov (professor of mathematics) left his fast-track career at Walmart, (10-12) where he served as Director of Insights and Analytics and was responsible for innovations and patents in artificial intelligence and blockchain. He joined in late 2018 and immediately drove innovation in all technological verticals ranging from Shopin’s unique approach to marrying Visual Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing to creating the Retail Intelligence Data Engine. (13-38)

We were joined by advisors Mark Plaskow, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning expert, and Professor Richard Linares from MIT.(39-54) Beyond serving as technical advisors, Mark and Richard work daily on Shopin’s Visual A.I. and NLP engines.

Shopin released the Retail Intelligence Data Engine (R.I.D.E.) and secured two provisional global patents for the approach and system: One for the type of data and methods to derive insights, and a second patent for how we use our Visual Artificial Intelligence to refine the universal SKU catalogue (identifying duplicate and similar items, even if their details were changed or omitted). R.I.D.E. is a recommendation and actionable insights engine which decentralizes the purchase data insights of industry’s top retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Michael Kors, Coach and thousands of smaller brands. Shopin has a proprietary method for accessing the purchase data inferences of major online retailers in order to provide the kind of unique insights which power Amazon’s recommendation and analytics engines (and gives them the data necessary to spin up successful competitive LLCs that compete with retailers). Today R.I.D.E. incorporates 3.5Bn purchase data transactions, over 30MM cooccurrences between SKUs, over 12MM SKUs, and tracks over 80,000 brands. (55-78)

Shopin partners with Blockwell to release a live demo of effortless branded token creation for the world of retail. Shopin’s new swapped token can teach the world of retail new tricks. Retailers can purchase Shopin tokens, which they can brand as their own tokens to reward shoppers for loyalty and acting on ads or content. Shopin released a live demo on the Rinkeby network which anyone can test at the link provided above. (79-91)

In Q2, The Lead (Retail Thoughtleader) and The Robin Report, announced the Leading 100 list for 2019 with Shopin awarded “Moonshot of the Year”. Noah Gellman, CEO, and founder of The Lead, elaborates: “Moonshot of The Year is reserved for the early stage company that we believe will be the highest growth company with the most impact across the industry.” (92-103)

In recent news, Shopin has been accepted into the IEEE to lead the working group setting the standards for decentralized identity. Shopin CEO Eran Eyal shares: “It’s a massive privilege to lead the formation of the global standards for decentralized identity, which we’re so incredibly passionate about. There are only about 250 corporate members such as Samsung, Sony, Apple, Google. We’re humbled to be in that kind of company at the IEEE pushing this fundamental human right and key requirement for the next generation of retail.” (103-117)

Recently Eran Eyal and Lane Campbell returned triumphant from GDS Summit with several of the Fortune 100 retailers such as Macy’s, Coach, Michael Kors, Ascena Brands, Finish Line, Halston Heritage, Millys, and eBay ranking Shopin either 9 or 10 out of 10 for R.I.D.E. and our vision of a universal shopper profile for retail. We’re in discussions with the retailers to move to pilots.

In the next 2 months, Shopin will be revealing some key insights, including:

The new patent pending ShopChain architecture and whitepaper
Roadmaps
R.I.D.E. growth figures
An update on the R.I.D.E. Backbone architecture, which incorporates Shopin’s proprietary Visual Artificial Intelligence and NLP engines
Partnerships
More validation from major retailers
New advisors and team members

WIMI Hologram AR's AI Interactive Vision Technology Brings Holographic Characters to Everyday Life

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When watching the Hollywood blockbuster, there is a scene we are very familiar with: the protagonist swings his hand, and a three-dimensional virtual display screen appears in front of him, and the content on the screen can be switched at will. In many museums, concerts or fashion shows, we often see similar three-dimensional images, which have shocking and vivid effects and is called as "holographic projection" by people. The scenes in Hollywood blockbusters have now become reality. The holographic girlfriend created by WIMI Hologram AR began to walk into the mass.

"Holographic projection technology" refers to that an object has motion trajectory, spatial position and other information in addition to a simple appearance and color, which is difficult to be presented by traditional photos. But if these can be recorded in some way, the picture will show a 3D effect, and we can get all the information of this object, which is called holography. Holographic projection is a technology that records and reproduces the real three-dimensional images of the object by making use of the principle of interference and diffraction.

Holographic projection technology was first proposed by physicist Dennis Gabor in 1974. With the discovery of laser in the 1960s, the holographic projection technology has also ushered in rapid development. Nowadays, the realization of holographic projection mainly relies on several methods such as water mist projection, holographic film projection and so forth. Among them, the holographic film technology has realized large-scale commercialization with its low cost. Most of the stereoscopic images we see on the stage are realized through this way.

As an integrated entity of holographic AI cloud industry with the largest scale, the most complete industry chain and the best performance, WIMI Hologram AR has launched a socialized holographic cloud system specific to domestic market to create unique holographic AI interactive experience. The applications cover high-end home holographic entertainment, 5G holographic communication, holographic office meetings, holographic KTV rooms, holographic music saloon, holographic dancing hall, holographic bars and nightclubs, holographic high-end catering, holographic amusement parks, holographic indoor play, etc. Its application of the holographic technology in domestic social platforms is truly unique.

Mike Jackson is the most famous deceased singer in the world. Americans have synthesized and made Jackson's holographic concerts through the holographic software technology. Each ticket of the concert in Las Vegas and other places is sold for hundred of dollars, and there are nearly 1,000 audience in each concert every day, which has lasted for several years. Jackson's holographic concert is almost full every day, accumulating more than 1 billion U.S. dollars at the box office. It can be confirmed from this aspect that stage IP is also the most easily realized part in the holographic industry. Of course, this is also the most experienced visual experience brought by holographic technology.

Among holographic character IP in the construction of WIMI Hologram AR's holographic cloud platform, there is not only the IP of holographic girlfriend. WIMI Hologram AR, with focus on strategic IP and key IP, cooperates with film & television, animation and other institutions to jointly develop holographic animation and film & television works (such as micro film, serial dram, scene play, etc.) with shared copyright; it explores the feasibility of developing the holographic concert IP of deceased singers such as Huang Jiaju; it conducts IP development cooperation with film and television companies, commercial real estate companies, brand institutions, automobile manufacturers, etc. Relying on its rich IP resource library; it is access to high-quality scripts relying on internal production strength and creates unique IP by means of self-development + outsourcing.

The development of IP cannot be carried out without the technical support of holographic AI. Through many years of research and development, WIMI Hologram AR team has built third-generation holographic AI technology products. Its high simulation and user experience can be described as amazing. The Holographic virtual stage and holographic virtual character (holographic content IP) is one of the core industries in the virtual reality industry, and one of the industries that have proved to be the most profitable in the world.

When the era of real 5G communication comes, communications with people are no longer limited to both ends of the screen but can truly achieve three-dimensional real-time interaction in the 5G holographic video calls. As soon as the connection is made, digital images (that is, the hologram) are transmitted immediately, as if the two sides were chatting face to face in the same room. Going a little closer, seeing from the side, people can see the stereo effect of the other side's movements, and even see the precise details of the other side's skin. The holographic image is captured through the high-definition camera of holographic device, rendered via a cloud server and displayed dynamically during the call, which breaks through the traditional communication barrier. You can imagine sitting in front of a campfire and chatting with friends at any time, watching a movie in a private theater with your friends, holding meetings or other events anywhere in the world.

Previously the public only stayed at the level of immature technology, or perhaps disturbing different people will have different requirements for the appearance of holographic girlfriends. After years of development, holographic AI and other technologies are becoming more mature, and holographic AI interactive vision is an irresistible trend. WIMI Hologram AR has such a special holographic display device, which can make the hardware that is currently equipped with have a 3D image through other technical means. For example, with the mobile phone AR, there will be 3D image in mobile phone, which can be summoned when the user needs it, and the camera of the phone can also recognize others' movements and expressions, helping to obtain visual parts. Smart speakers can project images outward by the projection technology. Chat members in WIMI Hologram AR's holographic platform can decide their facial expressions through their expression buttons. In fact, the expression of virtual characters is very rich in the chat, and smiles, grin and various details can be displayed. WIMI Hologram AR's ultimate goal is to make the scene of holographic AI interaction bring people an immersive experience, including voice, motion and facial expression tracking. WIMI Holographic cloud platform can provide one-stop service, virtualize top entertainers and make virtual characters become stars. It is able to break through the time and geographical conditions through the holographic cloud. The holographic cloud choreography platform can provide combined and rich presentation of virtual effect, virtualize the physical scene, lower the cost and improve the effects presented.

With the change of bandwidth conditions of the 5G holographic communication network, 5G holographic application market will usher in an explosion. High-end applications such as holographic interactive entertainment, holographic meeting, and holographic conference will gradually spread to the direction of holographic social intercourse, holographic communication and holographic home application. WIMI Hologram AR plans to support to the holographic cloud platform service and 5G communication holographic application with multiple technologically innovative systems based on the core technology of holographic AI face recognition technology and holographic AI face changing technology.

In the history of human audiovisual technology, the pursuit of higher definition has always been a fundamental law. The standards of the broadcasting and television has been upgraded from standard definition, high definition, full high definition and 4K to 8K pilot stage and high-simulation holographic image of Rio Olympic Games in 2016. This kind of law will inevitably be reflected in the high-end engineering display. In the application of virtual simulation of large-scale cultural centers, cultural and tourism projects, sports venues and competition sites, and aerospace and nuclear industry, holographic technology means higher information carrying capacity and better visual experience. Real-time interaction has become the most subversive social innovation under the supplementation of 5G network. The social scenes have also expanded from reality to richer virtual reality, and immersive visual experience has made the social intercourse more immersive.

Why does China have particularly favorable natural conditions, it should consider the investment required for artificial intelligence. China has two rich basic elements – computing power and capital. According to the consulting firm Gartner, the cloud computing market has grown by more than 30% in recent years and will continue to grow. According to statistics from the think tank Wuzhen-institute, China's artificial intelligence companies received capitals of 2.6 billion U.S. dollars in 2012-2016, which are lower than 17.9 billion U.S. dollars of investment for their U.S. counterparts, but are still growing fast overall.

Algorithm development is an iterative and well-polished process. The biggest difference between industrial circles and academic circles is that the academic circles hope to create more algorithms, pursue more novelty and creativity, while the industrial circles pursue the function, performance and stability indicators of the system to produce the best system based on business requirements and resource constraints without the requirement of inventing the most novel algorithm. The algorithm improvements in the industry circle include many dimensions, such as how data is processed, the data scale and source, parameter setting, model structure and also loss function design, model acceleration algorithm, etc. Each factor may have a great influence on the final result. It is also very important to solve problems from a system perspective, such as designing a new system processing process, and defining problems as detection problems or identification problems.

For so many algorithm models, if each model needs to be iteratively upgraded and support different versions of different hardware platforms, how to continuously polish the core algorithm is a big challenge under the constraints of R&D personnel and training hardware resources. In the traditional algorithm development model, algorithm engineers often bring up data annotation tasks which will be completed by the data annotator. However, algorithm engineers need to care about how to develop annotation tools, how to train annotators, how to convert the data format, and how to purify the data annotated, and finally manually train the model on a physical machine.

According to the report of Singapore's "Union Morning Paper", Schwartzman, president of Blackstone Group, pointed out that China's artificial intelligence technology has experienced explosive growth. He said that when he went to China, he saw new companied that are being constantly established, and the number of companies developing to the artificial intelligence field is growing rapidly. It is reported that China has invested a huge government funds in the research and development of artificial intelligence. Luo Haozhi, PWC's global chairman, believes that if US corporate presidents, education and government no longer strengthen themselves in this area, then the United States is likely to start falling behind.

The Chinese artificial intelligence industry started relatively late, but it is in a period of progress in the aspect of infrastructure such as technology research. The core of artificial intelligence is massive data. China has a large population base, rapidly developing mobile Internet, and huge data resource advantage. Therefore, the rise of artificial intelligence is a rare opportunity for China, and it has opened the market door to China's Ai technology companies.

WIMI Hologram AR's AI Face Holographic Service Competes with SenseTime's Face Recognition Technology

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The investment dividend brought about by the "innovation of business model" in the era of the Internet and mobile Internet is no longer the mainstream of investment in the next decade with the development of macroeconomic environment, financial environment, market and technology. Artificial intelligence technology has become the biggest investment opportunity in the next 8-10 years. The investment opportunity in this field cannot be described too much using "gold is everywhere".

In the 1960s, the research on the engineering application of face recognition was officially opened. The initial methods mainly used the geometric structure of the face for identification through the analysis on the feature points of face organs and the topological relationship between them. This method is simple and intuitive, but once the face posture and expression change, the accuracy was seriously reduced.

Nowadays, the solution is mostly the multisource face recognition technology based on active and near-infrared images. It can overcome the effect of light changes and has achieved superior recognition performance with overall system performance surpassing the three-dimensional image face recognition in terms of accuracy, stability and speed. The sub-areas of computer vision are widely applied, and plenty of commercial activities around the world have benefited from it. The use of face recognition model will continue to grow over the next few years.

In the field of face recognition, the false accept rate and rate of missing report are usually used as the main indicators to measure the ability of the algorithm in the industry. In the case of the same false accept rate, the higher the recognition accuracy rate, the lower the false accept rate, which all means the better performance of the technology.

It is worth mentioning that the algorithm strength competition between "three giants" of Chinese artificial intelligence startups, SenseTime, CLOUDWALK and MEGVII on the same stage in public is quite fierce.

CLOUDWALK is the most popular supplier of face recognition applications in China's banking industry. More than 50 banks including ABC, CCB, Bank of China and Bank of Communication have adopted CLOUDWALK's products. The financial identify certification and remote certification platform of many banks on the market adopt CLOUDWALK's technology. This is not only due to the strong technical strength, but also because CLOUDWALK is a face recognition company that is invited to draft and formulate national standards for face recognition, and it has excellent technical indicators and R&D background. Among them, ABC, with the super counter and function of withdrawal by face swiping, is one of the four major banks that first adopt the face recognition technology.

SenseTime has cooperated with many financial institutions and banks such as Jingdong, UnionPay, China Merchants Bank, Lakara and Rong360. for example, users can complete the comparison and unlock the password by scanning the face on Jingdong wallet, replacing the traditional password login method, which is more convenient and secure. SenseTime provides face search technology to help Lakala quickly complete the comparison between new user photos and the existing blacklisted face databases to efficiently and accurately screen out potential fraudsters and protect the rights of ordinary users. Through witness comparison and bio-assay technology, Lakala will know whether the user's registered information is consistent with the operator himself, effectively preventing identity information theft. SenseTime provides integrated solutions for Rong360 platform, including face recognition, witness comparison, document recognition, the completion of comparison, and the realization of remote identity authentication, making financial services more convenient and safer.

With the support of Alibaba, MEGVII provides face recognition login function for Alipay clients. People no longer need to enter cumbersome passwords, but just blink at the camera, turn the head to easily complete the login. At the same time, MEGVII also provides Alipay with a FaceID remote authentication service from the end to the cloud. In addition, MEGVII also provides face recognition service for Internet financial companies such as MIUI Jinrong and Niwodai, as well as China Citic Bank, Jiangsu Bank and Beijing Bank.

From a professional point of view, no face recognition algorithm can perform optimally in any scenario, which is one of the reasons why each company submits multiple algorithms. WIMI Hologram AR focuses on computer vision holographic service. It is one of the integrated entities of holographic cloud industry with the largest scale, the most complete industry chain and the best performance, aiming at becoming a holographic cloud platform with the most potential and most international influence.

WIMI Hologram AR covers many links in the holographic AR technologies such as holographic computer vision AI synthesis, holographic visual presentation, holographic interactive software development, holographic AR online and offline advertising launch, holographic ARSDK payment, 5G holographic communication software development, holographic face recognition development and holographic AI face change development. With the one-stop service capability, it has grown into one of the largest integrated technology solution providers of holographic cloud in China.

WIMI Hologram AR has made major breakthroughs and leap-frog development in the field of holographic applications such as advertising, entertainment, education and 5G communication. Aiming at the in-depth R&D and market application of al links of holographic 3D computer vision, including vision collection, AI synthesis, transmission, presentation and application, it is committed to establishing a scalable and open service platform, building a bridge between the application of holographic technology and the presentation of holographic computer vision, realizing the presentation of the application of holographic computer vision in different scenarios and promoting the leap-forward development of the industry, in order to realize the vision of WIMI Hologram AR, "to become the creator of China's holographic ecology".

WIMI Hologram AR has become China's largest holographic comprehensive solution provider, and the number of its holographic computer vision copyright, holographic technology-related patents and software copyright all ranks the first in the industry. With capabilities ranging from the production of computer vision, construction of service platform to the cloud software development and technical support and many other links, it has more comprehensive one-stop service capabilities than other companies in the same industry.

WIMI Hologram AR's holographic computer vision data acquisition is a stereoscopic 3D computer vision with extremely high simulation degree that is formed by the complex image information acquisition with dozens of or more cameras and computer synthesis technology.

The presentation of holographic computer vision allows people to see the confused image of 3D holographic computer vision and the real world through fixed-end or mobile-end projection device, which is an implementation of augmented reality.

The application of holographic computer vision and augmented reality related technologies have broad prospects. Application scenarios include but are not limited to holographic cinemas, holographic theaters, holographic education, holographic advertisements, holographic entertainment, holographic exhibition and display, holographic new retail, holographic high-end home applications, holographic vehicle-mounted products, holographic communication, etc.

At the same time, even though the unicorns are deeply dedicated to the field of face recognition, they are still surrounded by Facebook, Google, Tencent and other domestic and foreign giants one the one hand, and on the other hand, it will also respond to the self-challenge and subversion of quickly changing artificial intelligence technology.

When a typhoon blows up in an emerging segmentation, it will always attract many entrepreneurs and hot money to invest in it. But after several rounds of competition and contest of elimination series, only a few oligarchs and even a super giant will be finally left in the market. It will all be such a survival process from the Hundred-Regiment Campaign, battle of taxi software, to the bicycle sharing, and to the artificial intelligence and the finer face recognition.

With the development of artificial intelligence, the application of biological recognition technology will be more extensive in the context of global informatization, cloud computing and big data. Among them, face recognition technology will develop towards the trend of networking, cloud technology and multi-mode integration.
