New technologies, innovative products, and aggressive startups are permanently challenging established B2B e-commerce companies today. Due to dropshipping, low investment requirements, and simple customer access, it has never been easier to start your own online shop. To stay on top of upcoming competition and trending products, established players have to constantly monitor product portfolios, challengers and competitors. Dig deep into the market landscape of products, trends and competitors to help us lift the fog in B2B e-commerce!

eaSi Demand Forecast

Demand prediction / Chemical Industry
Budget:
€25,000
Partner:
evonik

Silanes are important chemical additives used in many industries and applications, eg. semiconductors, coatings industry, automotive and construction industry. Production is mainly driven by economies of scale, but short-term order cycles and long setup times challenge production planning on a daily basis. Do you bring new ideas? Can you challenge the status quo on a global scale?

Stories of Success

Hear from our winners from the last open call 2018.

Natural Gas Price Prediction

Price Prediction
Partner:
Kolumbus

Some municipal utility providers would like to optimize their trading activities. Here, we set our focus to one special contract of the natural gas market, the so-called day ahead. Intraday and short-term price prediction of this specific product can help municipal utility providers to optimize their trading activities with regard to storage operation, balancing group management and portfolio management. Can we design algorithms to forecast intraday and short-term price movements in this context?

Spatial Pattern Recognition

CoMputer vision, detection, spatial analytics
Partner:
RAG

To help keep the Ruhr area safe, RAG conducts flights that measure exact ground elevation levels. These measurements reveal ground depressions that can be early indicators of structural collapse and cause property damage in the future. Spotting these depressions is a difficult task. Can we develop an algorithm that spots ground depressions better than the human eye?
