AI at Nestlé: potential, challenges and examples

By Barcelona Tech City

Nestlé is looking to engage with partners worldwide to continue its journey of implementing AI at scale for both consumer and business applications. AI, and in particular machine learning (ML), is a strategic building block for Nestlé because of its huge potential to bring about efficiencies, sustainability and a hyper-personalized customer journey.

Nestlé is also exploring the implementation of advanced big data and analytics solutions which, combined with AI, will unlock huge data volumes in an automated way in real-time and ultimately lead to maximum profitability.

Through this meetup, Nestlé will share their challenges and needs with the AI community in Barcelona to get feedback and insights, as well as to identify potential partners to help Nestlé continue to move ahead with their AI implementation strategy.
