BT-ML: Product Recommender

A product recommender based on artificial intelligence

This app is an artificial intelligence-powered product recommender for Odoo. It learns how different products are combined together from past sales and automatically fills in the convenient fields Odoo already provides in an automatic and unattended way. It offers certain configuration options suitable for both basic and advanced users.

This app was presented in the Odoo Experience 2021. It is a good idea to start watching the video of the presentation, ideally completely, but if you are in a hurry you can start at 13:08 where the app is shown running.

Notice that this app has slightly changed with respect to the version shown in the Odoo Experience 2021: the advanced configuration options mentioned in the Q&A (starting at 20:13 are now not hidden as system parameters but also available from the Sales configuration settings in the case you want to fine-tune them in an easy way.

Installation

  1. Install the Python dependencies, listed in the file requirements.txt
    • sudo pip3 install pandas==1.2.4
    • sudo pip3 install mlxtend==0.18.0
    • sudo pip3 install numpy==1.20.2
  2. Go to the Apps, search for either BT-ML: Product Recommender or bt_product_recommender, and install it.

Configuration

For a fast configuration, it may be enough to just see the video from the Odoo Experience 2021, where at 13:08 we start using the app and show an example of a simple configuration. For a more detailed explanation of the parameters you can configure, keep reading this section.

Settings

After you install the app, you can go to the Settings for Sales and activate the checkbox **Activate AI-powered Product Recommender**. This allows you to indicate certain business rules to be taken into account by the product recommender:

  • Number of Recommendations.
  • Sales Order Exclude Domain: Sales orders matching this domain won't be taken into account when computing the recommendations.
  • Products Exclude Domain: Products matching this domain won't be taken into account when computing the recommendations.

The advanced configuration settings can be changed if the flag Show Advanced Configuration Settings is checked, including the metric used to compute the recommendations:

Scheduler

Once the product recommender is activated, the scheduler BT-ML: Product Recommender will be able to run. It is configured to run once a day, but you can change this period at your convenience. The scheduler won't run if the flag on the settings, Activate AI-powered Product Recommender, is not checked.

Developers

This section is targeted to developers wishing to extend this app, not for the end users that will use it.

This app is intended to work in a way that no intervention is needed other than a small configuration made at the beginning. However, this app is developer-friendly in the case you need to extend it following its license OPL-1:

  • Since OPL-1 allows you to use this app as a library, but not copying its code, every step in the process has been placed in its own method, so that you can easily extend it using the usual method inheritance provided by Odoo.
  • The app is well covered by automated unit tests that rely on the Odoo testing framework.
  • The code is formatted using black, following the current trends of code-layout for Odoo apps.
