Use Cases

AI Use Case for Industrials

SFL Scientific’s knowledge helping manufacturers leverage AI solutions such as Inventory prediction and inspection automation gives them a competitive advantage over established competitors while actually impacting the bottom line.

Predicting Sales & Inventory

The goal was to predict sales and sell-out events for mens’ and womens’ new products 12-months in advance using historical sales data and product metadata. Optimized supply chain informs multiple distributors, warehouses, and outlets who have varying needs for products and stock.

Inventory & Sales Machine Learning

Classification & Feature Automation

Develop a trainable deep learning feature identification system capable of detecting and localizing important security and combat-related features in 2D and 3D satellite & drone imagery.

Deep Learning / Computer Vision

Automated Thermal Detection

Develop a computer vision & deep learning based system to classify and predict thermal patterns in thermal vents of power stations from live drone video for inspection & monitoring.

Deep Learning / Computer Vision

Automation of Inspection with Deep Learning

Developed a deep learning-based pipeline to identify, localize, and segment 20+ defects within high-end wafers and dies. Autonomous system performs all QC in the clients manufacturing workflow.

Deep Learning / Computer Vision

Beverage Demand Forecasting

SFL Scientific worked with the organization to create a set of robust demand forecasting algorithms to predict case volumes with less than 1% error; raw data is ingested from Nielsen and historical shipment data across lines and displayed as an interactive dashboard within PowerBI.

Traditional Machine Learning

Call Center Optimization & Decision Support

Developed a keyword & topic modeling extraction pipeline to extract key trends of topic occurrence for case manager-patient phone calls.
