Abstract :
Online-to-offline (O2O) services are now big trends in the mobile industry. Applying mobile technology to traditionally offline-based industry, O2O services are rapidly changing the way people order food, call taxies and how local businesses are advertising their stores and services.
In order to offer mobile services which are deeply integrated with physical world, new technologies are needed to solve problems that are not present in online-only services. In this seminar, we will first talk about how different technologies are used to location and proximity-based services. Recent trend for mobile authentication, which is essential in commerce applications, will also be discussed. The ability to recognize physical objects using their images is helpful to many commerce services and examples of deep neural network applications will be presented.
SK planet is the leading commerce company in Korea and is expanding its O2O and e-commerce businesses to US and Asian countries. This seminar will give a glimpse of how new technologies are being developed and utilized to differentiate services in rapidly evolving industry.
