AI-system AiFi automates any store 2018-03-05 10:06:00 / INTERESTING INFORMATION

Developers from the American start-up decided to compete with Amazon, releasing their own artificial intelligence system, capable of automating any store. Earlier, the "smart" store with a fully automated service in the United States was presented by Amazon, but any businessman who owns retail space will soon be able to compete with the giant of Internet commerce.

The solution, developed by AiFi specialists, implies not only the lack of sellers, but also cash desks. Buyer just go inside the store, choose the product you like and go further on their business. Write-off of money for the purchase is automatic – the AI algorithm will do it all yourself. The AiFi explains that their solution makes it easy to automate any already operating store or supermarket, while Amazon has to completely modernize the outlet.

In addition to the fact that AI from AiFi is able to independently release goods and count customers, it is able to collect data on how visitors behave. Collecting statistics and analyzing the information received, the program eventually learns to better manage the store and serve customers. The collected data array is processed, and then transferred to the owners, who can also take note of the information.

The head of the startup AiFi noted that the system will begin testing at the end of 2018 – the first store will open closer to Christmas and New Year. After AiFi tests its development, the company plans to open a whole network of such "smart" supermarkets.
