“Nike acquires AI platform Celect to better predict user shopping behavior”

Nike on Tuesday announced the acquisition of Boston-based predictive analytics firm Celect to strengthen its direct-to-consumer strategy. Nike COO Eric Sprunk explained that as Celect’s technology is integrated into Nike’s mobile apps and websites, Nike will be better positioned to predict retail shopping patterns and behavior. Acquiring Celect is easier and faster than spending two to three years incubating the same platform in-house.

Nike hopes Celect can help it reduce its stock-out rate and reduce the unplanned increase in demand for sneakers and clothing. If Nike can better control inventory and keep goods from overstocking in warehouses, it can help reduce pressure on profit margins. (Sina Finance)

“24-hour sell-out “artificial milk” ice cream, a new revolution in food production methods”

PerfectDay produces the two main proteins in milk through fermentation: whey protein and casein by extracting cow’s DNA and adding it to microorganisms like yeast. Dry protein is combined with vegetable fats, water, vitamins and minerals to create a lactose-free, vegan product with the same taste, consistency and nutrients as cow’s milk for ice cream, cheese, yogurt and a range of other dairy products.

“Scientists have developed an “artificial tongue” that can taste whiskey of different years”

Recently, the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom has developed an “artificial tongue” that can taste whisky of different years. The “artificial tongue” is actually a tiny glass wafer containing 6 million “artificial taste buds” that are 500 times smaller than human taste buds, made of 6 different gold and aluminum and coated with different chemicals. When they “taste” the whisky, the plasma resonance of the metal produces subtle changes, which vary from category to category and vintage, and the sensitivity is even higher than that of professional tasters.

This technology can help beverage manufacturers ensure consistent product quality and help combat counterfeit products. In the future, it may also be applied to a wider range of scenarios, such as the rapid identification of toxic substances and environmental monitoring of rivers. (Love Faner)

Mart Salumäe, CEO and co-founder of Decomer, announced that they have developed an edible, water-soluble plastic bag that is currently mainly used for food packaging, but can also be extended to other pharmaceutical, crop and fruit packaging.

Unlike previous methods of extracting biodegradable plastics from chemicals or animal products, the newly developed plastics are based entirely on plant materials, safe enough to be eaten and naturally dissolved in both cold and hot water. Most importantly, the easy availability of plant materials greatly reduces costs, making it possible to market this new type of plastic bag on a large scale. Decomer’s next step is to raise seed funding to invest in partnerships with large food companies. (Foodaily)
