Frustrated with only global eCommerce players benefitting from deep AI technologies, Alan founded Shopbox to give every retailer a fair chance to compete in the market. His mission is to help retailers grow their business by exploiting AI with minimum effort.
For nearly 25 years, he has worked with retailers at the forefront of Advanced Analytics and AI to embed intelligence into business processes. Having led several initiatives for the SAS Institute, the most prominent AI technology provider globally, Alan has seen the impact of artificial intelligence across every discipline in retail.
In his time at the forefront of developing new technologies for retail, he has spoken on trends, biases and opportunities at expert events across over 30 countries, from Finland to South Africa and the US to Singapore.
