Amazon introduces Go, makes falling in line a thing of the past

The Seattle-based commerce company has once again made it easier to shop with the introduction of the Amazon Go. It basically eliminates the need to fall in line when you shop for groceries.


All you need to do is to go inside the Amazon Go store, scan the app on your phone at the entrance, get the necessary items, and leave. Using advanced technologies like computer vision, deep learning algorithms, and sensor fusion, the store ‘knows’ what you pick up from the shelf and once you leave the place, items checked out will be reflected on your Amazon account.


The 1,800-square-foot store will be open to the public “early 2017” at the company’s home turf in Washington. Watch the video above to see how this could reshape the future of shopping for groceries.

    Automation is the word. Imaginine niyo guys kung ilan nawawalan ng trabaho in the next 10 -15 years. Una mga factory workers – mga robots na, mga tagasagot ng telepono nawalan ng trabaho, mga tagabukas ng pinto ng hotel etc -nawalan ng trabaho.

    In 15 years siguro bihira na lang nag dridrive na tao – lahat software driven na rin. Ngayon eto – I’m sure magiging ganito na someday. Imaginine niyo matitipid ng SM, Robinsons etc sa mga pagpapasahod ng tao. Exciting and scary times indeed. So dapat sa panahon ngayon constantly iniimprove mo skills mo otherwise mapagiiwanan ka talaga.
