Nvidia GPU 2019 Face RecognitionSession Title: How GPU-Enabled Face Recognition Will Enhance the Consumer Experience

Face recognition is widely deployed in retail stores to help prevent rising shoplifting and return fraud, which is a $30B problem in the United States alone. The next step for retailers is even more exciting: leveraging face recognition to transform the consumer experience. While some retailers experimented with in-store engagement using some combination of mobile mac addresses, beacon technology and mobile apps, the effort has largely died due to technical hurdles and low engagement. But face recognition – in tandem with AI-powered text chat bots, powered by GPUs – is poised to drive real-time, contextually relevant engagement in ways never previously imagined. This session will include a presentation as well as a panel discussion and Q&A.
