About this Sample

This sample application demonstrates the use of the XpertRule Rules & Decision automation engine as an IBM BlueMix service.

The knowledge provides an automated decision of which items to re-order for a convenience store based on the foot-fall (number of people in the store which is derived from image recognition), current weather data and whether local schools are on holiday (vacation).
