eBay to Use Artificial Intelligence to Improve Shipping
eBay CEO Devin Wenig hopes to be able to anticipate what shoppers want to buy by utilizing artificial intelligence (AI). In a post on the eBay corporate blog, Wenig discussed how technology is influencing e-commerce, and he also discussed his own company's interest in this area. The CEO expects the pace of development of AI to accelerate over the next two to three years "beyond anything previously imagined," and he believes commerce will be the focus of some of the most immediate and exciting applications of AI. Technology will even render the search box redundant, he said.
