The advantage of Personalization in Rotating Stores (part one)

Ferris Wheel

The concept behind a rotating store is relatively simple; only a fraction of a catalog’s items are purchasable at any given time. The store effectively hides the remaining products, and transactions on that subset are impossible until a “rotation” occurs. In most cases, a rotation takes place at some predetermined cadence known by the consumer. In this sense, a rotating store shares similarities with a “flash sale.” Under this scenario, items that were likely purchasable beforehand have now been discounted for a short time, usually 1–2 days. However, the mechanism is slightly different as the “sale” in a rotating store is the opportunity to purchase the item. While possible, it does not have to include an actual discount.

AI’s biggest failure

Wired brain

Contrary to popular belief, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can’t fix everything. Sure AI has afforded breakthroughs in self-driving cars and healthcare, but it brings up the question of if there should be areas that AI should stay out of. If ever there was an area where AI should stay out of, it’s online test proctoring. These test-proctoring services include: Respondus, ProctorU, Proctorio, Examity, and Honorlock.
