“We are immensely grateful for this opportunity,” said Alexander Berenov, Inspector Cloud’s founder. “Turkey is a gateway to growing markets and is located strategically close to the Middle East and Central Asia, our next destinations.”

Inspector Cloud has been providing AI-powered solutions for retail businesses since 2017. As a part of a project with PepsiCo, the company developed a new image recognition system for popular brands like Lay’s, Pepsi, Mirinda, 7Up, and Aqua Minerale, among others. Their solution allows merchandisers to photograph shelves with their smartphones and quickly receive recommendations on product placement from neural networks.
