Dan Klein explores a prototype that uses AI to recognize human behavior in retail stores, using Intel Movidius to enable deep learning across video streams and connecting multiple AI functions in a single pipeline using the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit. The solution enables users to track the movement of individuals around a store with real-time recognition of gender, sentiment, and apparel and is able to tie customer data (location, face metadata, and apparel metadata) in the floor area around a point-of-sale or digital signage. This allows for subsequent behavioral insights, experimentation, and validation of customer engagement.
