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.
