Description

The cloning of online marketplaces and eCommerce sites that peddle in illegal merchandise and counterfeits is proliferating and nearly impossible to track on a manual basis. In this session, we turn the tables on these illicit operators. We will examine how computer vision, a subset of AI, is being smartly leveraged to track and remove illegal content and fakes like it’s a walk in the park.
