Welcome to episode 280 of the AI in Action podcast, the show where we break down the hype and explore the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.
Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI in the United States and Europe.
Today’s guests are John Carpenter, Chief Technology Officer and Sunil Sharma, Chief Operating Officer at Blacksquare in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Founded in 2010, Blacksquare is the global leader in digital transformation of the alcohol industry. BlackSquare has become the global leader in end-to-end digital and ecommerce solutions for international liquor brands, providing the tech and infrastructure required to sell their products online all around the world.
After discovering that there were no suitable software solutions capable of fully integrated management of global DTC alcohol sales, their product Insight was born. This innovative technology integrates consumer acquisition, ecommerce, fulfillment and logistics into a single platform, giving brands seamless access to the data needed to reach their customers where they are. Insight allows brands to take control of the entire customer experience by eliminating fragmentation in the supply chain.
