On peer-to-peer marketplaces like Ubcoin Market, listings (advertisements) are created and posted by users. Among the good and legitimate listings some can be posted by scammers. So, the moderation of advertisements is needed. Artificial intelligence system moderates the content quicker, cheaper and with a better quality in comparison with manual check made by employees.
First, the AI system solves legal risks for the business – there can be seller advertisements that do not comply with the requirements of law. For instance, advertisements of drugs, weapons, pornography, etc. The system detects it by the text or image and immediately blocks it or sends it to an employee to double check.
Second, the AI system solves ethical risks: it blocks materials containing toxic comments, racism or discrimination.
It is important for a seller on a p2p marketplace to set an optimal price to sell goods quickly but at the same time with the maximum profit. And in order to fix the price he does manual market research, which requires a lot of time. Ubcoin artificial intelligence system does market analysis and recommends the optimal price of goods to sellers.
It also shows sellers the predicted level of interest of buyers depending on different prices. And it tells buyers whether the price of one or another seller listing is optimal or not. It makes both seller and buyer experiences more pleasant and efficient.
Personal recommendations are needed to create an environment where users spend more time on the platform and buy more.
To do that the system analyses the user behaviour and ads that the user viewed or posted, builds a predictive model and shows to him in the first place listings that can be interesting and relevant to him.
The image quality of the product affects the level of sales in marketplaces. Often large manufacturers and experienced sellers have the advantage of being able to create high quality content. However, smaller sellers are often limited by the quality of their cameras on mobile phones.
To improve quality of photos uploaded by users, Ubcoin Market team implements Super Resolution technology. After a listing is created by a user, the image is automatically sent to the artificial intelligence module, where it is processed by the neural network to improve the image quality.
Scammers can post ads that don’t comply with the rules of the marketplace itself. For instance, scammers can duplicate some other people’s ads changing a few details or contacts. Or there can be a user who posts multiple ads from different accounts. Some ads may be classified as “suspicious”. For example, if a specific type or category of goods on the market costs on average $100, but something from this category is listed for $10, it will be called suspicious. System notices that and stops this behaviour.
Ubcoin Artificial Intelligence System is created under the supervision of the Chief AI Officer Kirill Kosolapov. You can watch an interview with him here.
