Amazon is a massive online retailer with millions of sellers and billions of products listed on its platform. To ensure that its marketplace is safe and reliable for buyers, Amazon has a team of experts who are responsible for detecting and responding to violations of its Business Solutions Agreement and Selling Policies.
In recent years, Amazon has been increasingly using AI to help with this task. AI is used to analyze large amounts of data quickly and efficiently, which helps Amazon to identify potential violations more quickly and accurately than human reviewers could.
For example, Amazon uses AI to scan product listings for potential counterfeit items. AI can also be used to identify sellers who are engaging in fraudulent or deceptive practices, such as selling products that are not as described or shipping products that are damaged or counterfeit.
Once a potential violation has been identified, it is reviewed by an Amazon employee. If the employee determines that the act is in violation of Amazon's policies, the seller may be issued a warning, suspended, or even deactivated from the Amazon marketplace. As one may imagine, this system often results in accounts being mistakenly suspended or deactivated.
How Mistakes Are Made
While AI plays a significant role in detecting and responding to violations, there is still a significant amount of human interaction involved. Humans are still responsible for reviewing all potential violations and making decisions about whether or not to take action.
This is because AI is not perfect. It can sometimes make mistakes, and it is important to have human experts who can review cases and make sure that the correct decision is made. However, as we all know is the case with humans, "everyone makes mistakes" and even though the AI response is reviewed by a human, there are so many violations flagged and not enough time to fully analyze them all. As a result, sellers are often wrongly accused of a policy violation or fraudulent or illegal conduct.
Human experts are also responsible for developing and updating the AI algorithms. This is because the algorithms need to be constantly updated to reflect changes in Amazon's policies and the marketplace.
