How ML Keeps Shelves Stocked at Home Depot with Pat Woowong

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Pat Woowong, principal engineer in the applied machine intelligence group at The Home Depot.

We discuss a project that Pat recently presented at the Google Cloud Next conference which used machine learning to predict shelf-out scenarios within stores. We dig into the motivation for this system and how the team went about building it, including what type of models ended up working best, how they collected their data, their use of kubernetes to support future growth in the platform, and much more.
