Room 3 | 11:30-12:00 | Tuesday, February 12, 2019

AI-based modeling increases confidence in sales volume forecasts built on research samples of a couple hundred consumers. This case study shows how the Market Shaker AI volumetric model unlocked the potential of a new innovation for L’OR coffee by:

  • Integrating the right context for purchase through a realistic shopping situation;
  • recreating the multitude of individual behaviors with powerful AI, multiplying the power to predict each one’s behavior up to 10,000 times; and
  • considering each buyer as unique throughout the entire modeling process.

Thanks to AI’s enhanced understanding of consumer’s behavior, JDE had the confidence of thousands upon thousands of virtual consumers behind the launch of their innovation.
