6:15 pm - 7:00 pm Face Recognition and Personalization: Data-Driven Markteting In a Brick & Click Store by Rodrigo Peplau, Solution Architect at NishTech, Inc and 4x Sitecore Technology MVP (2016-current)

Sitecore is a powerful Digital Marketing platform, with personalization tools that enable the creation of fully personalized experiences for different audiences. Combined with many headless options, personalized content managed in Sitecore can be distributed on multiple platforms and channels. This presentation shows how Face Recognition and Sitecore can be used in a brick & click store, taking advantage of customer's online behavior to provide fine-tuned personalized experiences. Face Recognition is presented as a much less intrusive way to identify contacts. We will expose the tools available to help (Libraries, Web APIs, techniques), and the challenges of build such a system: from face capturing and previous validations, XConnect operations for contact matching and identification, to the presentation of personalized content to the final user.

7:00 pm - 7:15 pm Break

7:15 pm - 8:00 pm ***Surprise Talk*** by Una Verhoeven - Solution Architect and Founder at AmpleEdge | Sitecore MVP[masked] | Member of SUGNL, SUGCON EU, Women of Sitecore.
