Imagine confidently walking into your Monday morning meeting without having to spend hours digging through data and insights ahead of time. 


What Are AI-Generated Summaries?


AI summaries within a retail intelligence platform are high-level synopses and key takeaways of the data in a retail dashboard. AI generates the most pertinent insights so users can quickly get answers to their most relevant questions, spending less time hunting down insights and more time taking action

The data science component of this functionality requires leveraging generative LLM (large language model) and creating a process that can automatically take the data behind a dashboard and convert it into this summary statement.

The end product highlights important points, gives supporting data as evidence, and refrains from making opinionated comments.
