The problem

Consumers today are more concerned about the environmental and social impacts of the products they purchase. They want to make informed choices and support brands that align with their values. By providing credible and transparent information about the sustainability of their products, brands can meet this demand and build trust with consumers. Governments and regulatory bodies are implementing stricter regulations and reporting requirements related to sustainability and product impact. Brands and retailers need to comply with these regulations and demonstrate their adherence to sustainability standards. The project can help in gathering and analyzing the necessary data to meet these requirements.

Sustainability has become a key differentiator in the marketplace. Brands that can effectively communicate their sustainability efforts and demonstrate the positive impact of their products have a competitive advantage. The project allows brands and retailers to gather and utilize data from various dimensions to develop compelling proof points that set them apart from competitors.

The problem that this project is trying to solve is the need for brands and retailers to effectively communicate the impact and sustainability of their products and brand as a whole. In today’s market, consumers are increasingly conscious of environmental and social issues and seek products that align with their values. As a result, brands and retailers are under growing pressure to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and provide transparent information about the impact of their products throughout their lifecycle.

This project aims to address this problem by leveraging data from various sources to identify and communicate proof points related to the impact and sustainability of products and brands. These proof points can include environmental factors such as carbon emissions, water usage, and waste generation, as well as social aspects like fair labor practices and community engagement.

In summary, this project addresses the need for brands and retailers to communicate proof points related to the impact and sustainability of their products and brand. By leveraging data from various sources, the project enables them to meet consumer demand, comply with regulations, gain a competitive advantage, and drive positive environmental and social impact.

The project goals

The main project goal is to build automation to extract information and add to the knowledge graph from different data sources.

Project Scope:

  • Build initial knowledge graph and supporting data structures (e.g. landing and staging data layers).
    • Ingestion of data sources into the initial version of the knowledge graph.
  • Update the knowledge graph and supporting data structures automatically with new data using a robust, automated pipeline.
    • Data Collection using Crawlers and Scrapers.
    • Data Pre-processing format and structure of the existing knowledge graph.
    • Entity Extraction: Entity Recognition and Entity Disambiguation.
    • Analysis of product images.
    • Entity Linking: Link new entities and relationships to existing nodes in the knowledge graph.
    • Updating the Graph: Incorporate the new entities and relationships into the knowledge graph (ML).
    • Ensure the Graph maintains consistency and coherence.

**More details will be shared with the designated team.
