About this Episode

Today we're joined by Tom Szumowski, Data Scientist at URBN, the parent company of Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and other consumer fashion brands. Tom and I caught up recently to discuss his project "Exploring Custom Vision Services for Automated Fashion Product Attribution." We start our discussion with a definition of the product attribution problem in retail and fashion, and a discussion of the challenges it offers to data scientists. We then look at the process Tom and his team took to building custom attribution models, and the results of their evaluation of various custom vision APIs for this purpose, with a focus on the various roadblocks and lessons he and his team encountered along the way.
