global trends more closely, Olympian City and PopSquare join hands to present a
new retail concept at POP Gallery, where A.I. and real-time big data analytics
are applied. Not only can customers experience the most talked-about products
from around the world and stay informed of the latest trends like their global
counterparts, but the “Trend Prediction” function of POP Gallery also analyses online
brand data collected from some of the most used social media platforms and
online retail networks (e.g. Facebook, Instagram and Amazon) to predict
upcoming trends and identify brands and product categories popular among global
consumers. Eventually, unique, uncommon, hot-off-the-press products are brought
to POP Gallery so that Hong Kong consumers can join hipsters worldwide and stay
at the forefront of global trends.
