AI: soon in a store near you

Updated 2017-06-27 09:41:20 Shanghai Daily

Five stores with artificial intelligence machines instead of human cashiers and check-out lines will open in a beta test in Shanghai next month as part of the AI revolution transforming China's retail industry.

The Take Go stores will be the Chinese version of the partially automated Amazon Go and will be opened in shopping centers and near tourist attractions.

DeepBlue Technology, the owner of the Take Go brand, will be the first to launch a system without cashiers in Shanghai, with wireless payment, fingerprint and facial recognition, and product recommendations.

The system, supported by Ailbaba's services and Nvidia's AI, is at the forefront of smart retailing, integrating online and offline networks and the latest technologies.

Beverage giant Wahaha also reportedly plans to soon open 100,000 shops with no human staff in China.
