H&M wants to sell more floral skirts and big data is helping

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • H&M earned its title as the world’s largest fashion brand, but to maintain such a standing and its customers base, the retailer is changing how it uses data analysis to better understand individual store locations, according to The Wall Street Journal.
  • In lieu of using just H&M’s team of designers to understand emerging trends to offer shoppers, the retailer is using algorithms to help assess customer receipts, returns and loyalty card data, according to the report.
  • The international retailer has 4,288 stores to account for, and 200 data scientists, analysts and engineers are working to help manage the data collected from purchase patterns for every item on the store sales floors, according to the report.
  • Just as that data goes through analysis, the algorithms continuously work to follow shoppers’ ever-changing behavior and expectations, Nils Vinge, H&M’s investor relations head, told the WSJ.
  • But just like the huge clothing inventory H&M possess, big data can be hard to handle without a form of AI automation in place.

Here’s Who Dies In “Game Of Thrones” S8, According To Data Science

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Why we care: Nobody was prepared for it when Ned Stark (Sean Bean) literally lost his head in the first season of Game of Thrones.
  • His death was a shot across the audiences bow, signaling that no character was safe.
  • The high-profile deaths have arrived with such regularity that one could conceivably predict who goes next.
  • Larkin took info on the shows bajillions of characters, scraped from a fan-made wikiincluding data points like house, gender, nobility status, age, and number of relatives already killedand used automated machine learning from DataRobot to determine who is most likely to die in the shows final season, which is scheduled…
  • Have a look at the results below, but keep in mind that the data comes from the Song of Fire and Ice books, rather than the show, which has taken some necessary liberties in its later seasons.
