Towards the Autonomous Supply Chain

Prof. Michael Feindt
Founder and Chief Scientist, Blue Yonder

November 12, 2018


Blue Yonder stands for robust probabilistic machine learning and data driven decision optimization and automation, packaged into consumable scaling narrow-AI products for retailers running in the cloud, made in Germany and having developed from long and deep experience in High Energy Physics. To fully profit from these products requires a massive change in the culture of decision making in companies. After the recent acquisition by jda the Blue Yonder technology will be distributed worldwide and widened both the complete supply chain up to the manufacturer and down to the end-customer. The underlying moonshot vision is the autonomous supply chain, leading to a much improved efficiency, less waste and independent of human biases.

The talk will give an overview over the techniques applied, the history of the company, and some observations on the applicability of AI in industrial settings.


The event will take place on Monday, 12 November, 2018 at 7pm at the Gästehaus Uni Heidelberg (guest house Uni Heidelberg), Im Neuenheimer Feld 370. Drinks and snacks will be provided, courtesy of the Division of Medical Image Computing at DKFZ. Kindly help us plan ahead by registering for the event on our meetup page.
