Commerce.AI was founded with the mission to harness the power of artificial intelligence to change the way commerce is done. 95% of today's data is unstructured, in the form of text, voice, images and video. When the AI starts to truly understand this data, it can empower the humans to do what we are best at - to build great products and services and sell with confidence!
Produce more. Consume less.
