Calvin Seward

Research Scientist


Deep learning for retail warehouse operations

Recent advances in deep learning have enabled research and industry to master many challenges in computer vision and natural language processing that were out of reach until just a few years ago. Yet these challenges represent only the tip of the iceberg of what is possible. In this talk, I will demonstrate how we have used deep neural networks in to solve a special case of the travelling salesman problem and in turn steer operations at Zalando’s fashion warehouses. Further, I will present a few tips and tricks on getting GPU enabled neural networks running with minimal technical overhead.

Calvin Seward is a Resarch Scientist for Zalando's Research Lab, working mainly on unsupervised and semi-supervised computer vision problems including classification, localization and semantic segmentation. The main line of attack for these problems is deep neural networks written in the Tensorflow framework and trained on GPU clusters. At the same time, he is involved in applying lessons from GPU-driven HPC computing and cutting edge Machine Learning to other fields of the Zalando universe. Past projects have included sizing solutions for online retail, warehouse management and recommendation systems.

Stefan Wellsandt

Research Associate


Augmenting Data Analytics in Manufacturing with a Digital Assistant: Insights from the COALA project

The shortage of skilled workers is a barrier to applying data analytics. Augmented analytics is an approach to lower it by using machine learning to automate related activities and natural language applications to assist less-skilled employees. This talk will present a related case study from the white goods industry. It focuses on a quality test lab at the end of a production line where workers use a digital assistant prototype to interact with descriptive and predictive data analytics

Stefan works as a research associate at the institute for production and logistics in Bremen (BIBA), Germany. His background is in industrial and mechanical engineering. Over the last ten years, he acquired expertise in information management and computer science, while working in various international and inter-disciplinary research projects. Stefan currently coordinates the Horizon 2020 research project COALA. Its goal is to build and test trustworthy, voice-enabled digital assistants for manufacturing
