Taipei, Taiwan. Gorilla Technology, a leading video big data and analytics company, and Far Eastone (FET), the premier mobile telecom company in Taiwan, jointly release the FURO, an AI Robot deployed to act as a sales assistant and provide customers with product information to enrich the customer experience in the store. This is the first time artificial intelligence has been implemented at this scale. The goal is to increase in-store traffic by 50% and grow revenue by 25% through new technology and innovative services.

FET is Gorilla’s Gold Partner in the retail space and has already implemented interactive signage at over hundreds of stores which has improved operation efficiency and increased revenue. AI’s strengths and video intelligence is targeted to supersede this by delivering responses based on the video recognition of the shopper’s profile, creating precise answers based on the technology’s facial recognition engine while learning critical elements of the shopper so as to better serve their particular needs.

Gorilla CEO Dr. Spincer Koh, , was quoted as saying: “The in-store AI robot will be a milestone for FET and Gorilla to bring retailing to the next level and offer a different shopping experience to customers. It’s a great pleasure working with FET, who are always looking at innovative technology to provide the best customer experiences while optimizing chain store operations.”

Gorilla’s role is to use its video analytics technology to record a store’s traffic, thereby helping FET understand in-store shopper behavior and deliver targeted advertising and personalized offers. The Omni-channel solution integrates the online experience with brick-and-mortar behaviors, enabling retailers to leverage a marketing strategy for multiple channels.

With over 15 years of experience in the video big data field, Gorilla aims to create new business intelligence for the retail industry and other verticals by offering advanced analytic technologies that incorporate data from multiple sources, including IoT devices. Management teams are empowered with real-time information for making better business decisions and for conquering the challenges from a today’s rapid digital transformation.
