Amazon has opened its first cashier-less store, operated through artificial intelligence.
The new Amazon Go store opened on Monday in downtown Seattle, potentially beginning a transformation of the retail landscape as we know it.
To begin their shopping, customers must scan an Amazon Go smartphone app as they pass through the store´s entrance.
Amazon Go then depends on cameras and sensors to track what shoppers take from the shelves, enabling customers to be billed at the end of their visit through a credit card held on file.
The store combines computer vision, machine learning algorithms and sensors, doing away with cashiers but still relying on humans to stack the shelves.
