ABEJA’s service leverages machine learning technology in data gathering, annotation, learning, deployment, inference, and relearning in a variety of fields.

It learned its AI social implementation know-how (including deep learning) that it has developed within Japan, working with local companies, including academic institutions, the manufacturing industry, the infrastructure industry, and the healthcare industry.

ABEJA shared that its platform provides retail industry store analysis solution and ABEJA Insight for Retail to more than 100 corporate customers and in over 520 stores, primarily leading Japanese retailers and distributors.

To date, ABEJA claimed to have more than 150 companies adopting the platform.
