In the past decades, E-Commerce has played an increasingly important role in people’s daily activities including work, entertainment and life. Benefiting from the economic and convenient advantages of E-Commerce, people can easily browse, buy and comment on their interested products or services through various online shopping platforms such as Amazon and Taobao. On one hand, E-Commerce helps users to save shopping costs and improve shopping experience; on the other hand, it has also been generating an unprecedented volume of online browse/order/comment data which create a main source of big data. How to manage and make full use of the big E-Commerce data in an efficient, economical and privacy-preserving manner is still a fundamental challenge.

Recently, machine learning powered Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as one of the key technologies to realize intelligent data management and business optimization. Therefore, AI has provided a promising way to bridge the main roles of E-Commerce including producers, vendors, consumers and online shopping platforms, as well as their surrounding businesses (e.g., packaging and shipping). However, the adaptation of AI-based methods is highly demanded to achieve their full potentials in the management and optimization of E-Commerce. How to utilize AI technology to minimize the gap between low E-Commerce service quality and high user experience expectation is still an open problem that needs intensive study.
