Title: Automated product categorization using transformer models
Examiner: Volker Krueger
Supervisors: Marcus Klang (LTH), Rasmus Ros (Theca systems)

Product categorization for e-commerce is a common Machine Learning problem where many solutions are feasible, however many of them can only handle a single store with a single taxonomy at a time. This paper aims to implement a model, trained on many different stores at the same time with different taxonomies, which can then be used on a wide variety of products. The solution proposal uses a pre-trained BERT model which is then fine-tuned on product data gathered from some of the largest e-commerce operating in Sweden. Our model performs well on the data set created for this thesis. However, due to the lack of existing data sets a benchmark score could not be yielded.
