Welcome to AiHello Machine learning e-commerce application.
The goal of this application is to optimize selling physical goods on the internet via Amazon & eBay.
We will be optimizing the following features in order to create a 24x7 automated selling program
- Pricing of the product based on current date: we want to increase the price of a product pre-emptively based on historical prices of similar products. For example we can know beforehand that snow shovels are in demand during winter so we can increase prices before winter approaches and start dropping prices as winter fades
- Pricing based on competition : we want to avoid the race to the bottom by constantly lowering the price
- Keywords optimization based on product description
- Estimate sales of competitors and "lookup" competitors for optimizing inventory
- Forecast sales & profit
- Automated personal customer support
- Suggest more products to sell based on current sales
I will be using Apache Spark for all my machine learning library and anticipate minimal deep learning as most of these machine learning activities can be done with the Spark ml library
