“Talent wins games but teamwork and intelligence wins championship.”

Michael Jordan


In this edition of the Phier, we celebrate the coming together of Intelligence and Brilliant Engineering, and raise a toast to VisionBox.


VisionBox – A market-ready solution built on Cogniphi innovation and UST’s engineering expertise

Powered by Cogniphi’s VisionAI and engineered by UST, this co-developed product integrates with the end-user’s CCTV feeds to provide smart, actionable insights that can help drive sales, improve customer loyalty, and eliminate operational inefficiencies. Businesses can choose desired number of patterns from the core AI bundles to create a customized VisionBox. And once on-boarded at one unit, the solution is easily scalable and ready for deployment in multiple locations within weeks.

Truly the confluence of the best of Cogniphi and UST in one single product.

More details of VisionBox will be featured on companies’ websites shortly.

We have added a couple of details of successful AI implementation to our website. Have a look at them.

Developing the Smart Factory – A Manufacturing Success Story

A leading automobile parts manufacturer with an almost eight-decade-long legacy in the industry approached Cogniphi for solutions to address challenges related to production loss, inventory management, and material wastage that were impacting their throughput and efficiency across the factory floor.

Bolstering Profits with AI- A Retail Success Story

A top US-based grocery retail chain with over 300 stores across the country approached us for a solution to a revenue shrinkage problem that they were facing due to bottom of the basket-related (BOB) losses. With over a 100-year-old legacy, the client is one of the top 20 largest retailers in the United States.

This edition we bring focus to 2 patterns that empower workforce

Stock-outs Lead to Walk Outs

Large scale research has shown that when consumers did not find the exact item they wanted, nearly one third went to another store to buy the product, while less than half bought a substitute. Abandoned purchases translate to 4% sales loss for a retailer and for retail giants near $40 million loss in a year. Product Out of Stock (POS) is attributed to inadequate untimely shelf replenishment and dependancy on outdated inventory management methods. AIVI retail identifies genuine stock outs with price tag correlation, forecasts stock outs based on insights from product depletion tracking, checks planogram vs realograms providing real time alerts to staff and recommendations for inventory stocking.

Workplace Safety Compliance

Every company/organization has to follow predetermined safety standards set by their own respective federal and provincial agencies. This is to ensure their employees are working in a safe environment and to eliminate chances of workplace accidents, injuries, or illness. With automated monitoring and anomaly detection, computer vision software can identify safety hazards and breaches like safety equipment undetected, etc.
