NEC Asia Pacific showcases AI and IoT powered solutions at Cloud Expo Asia 2018
NEC Asia Pacific participated in Cloud Expo Asia 2018, held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore. The manufacturer highlighted AI and IoT powered solutions for multiple verticals made possible by the Cloud.
For the first time in Singapore, NEC showcased a smart retail solution using NEC’s facial recognition technology, object recognition, and artificial intelligence technologies. This solution opens possibilities for retailers to deliver a more personalised shopping experience, by recognizing pre-registered customers’ faces at the shop entrance, offering a promotion or recommendation based on the customers’ purchasing history, and allowing swift check-out via facial recognition, which eliminates the need to queue at a cash register.
Lim Kok Quee, ,managing director and deputy CEO (ASEAN Sub-Region) of NEC Asia Pacific, commented: “NEC has strong computing and network technology backed by track record of over 100 years in the ICT industry. These technologies, together with our data-driven and predictive analytics, can provide customisable, innovative solutions to real-world challenges that accelerate business outcomes. Together with investment in cloud delivery, we believe that customers can achieve a cost efficient and high performance digital transformation of their businesses.”
