Mitigating parcel variability with an adaptable AI vision software

In this presentation, Erik Nieves will discuss the long-tailed and shifting distribution of parcels in fulfillment and distribution centers and how utilizing an adaptable, symbiotic human-ai vision system is the best way to approach the realities of volume and variability. Based on the assumption of change, rather than the anticipation of control, humans and AI working together can handle infinite variety as it occurs.
