Greetings CV/ML researchers!

We are excited to announce the release of two unique data challenge tracks (ABV and TAL/STAL) in our upcoming full-day workshop entitled RetailVision on June 18th at CVPR 2024. RetailVision aims to bring together scientists working in the physical retail industries with academic researchers to accelerate progress in developing AI-enabled solutions to challenging real-world problems.


The rapid development in computer vision and machine learning has caused a major disruption in the retail industry in recent years. In addition to the rise of online shopping, traditional markets also quickly embraced AI-related technology solutions at the physical store level. Following the introduction of computer vision to the world of retail, a new set of challenges emerged. These challenges were further expanded with the introduction of image and video generation capabilities.

The physical domain exhibits challenges such as the detection of shopper and product interactions, fine-grained recognition of visually similar products, as well as new products that are introduced on a daily basis. The online domain contains similar challenges, but with their own twist. Product search and recognition is performed on more than 100,000 classes, each including images, textual captions, and text by users during their search. In addition to discriminative machine learning, image generation has also started being used for the generation of product images and virtual try-on.

All of these challenges are shared by different companies in the field, and are also at the heart of the computer vision community. This workshop aims to present the progress in these challenges and encourage the forming of a community for retail computer vision.
