Amazon Ditches ‘Just Walk Out’ Checkouts at Its Grocery Stores

troppo disruptive ?

poco efficaci gli indiani a fare i cassiere remoti ? (altro esempio di artificial “artificial intelligence” o di ‘fake it ’till you make it” (fai finta finche’ non ce la fai))

o piu’ semplicemente il carrello come presidio di sicurezza è inevitabile ?

Amazon is phasing out its checkout-less grocery stores with “Just Walk Out” technology, first reported by The Information Tuesday. The company’s senior vice president of grocery stores says they’re moving away from Just Walk Out, which relied on cameras and sensors to track what people were leaving the store with.


Though it seemed completely automated, Just Walk Out relied on more than 1,000 people in India watching and labeling videos to ensure accurate checkouts. The cashiers were simply moved off-site, and they watched you as you shopped.

Instead, Amazon is moving towards Dash Carts, a scanner and screen that’s embedded in your shopping cart, allowing you to checkout as you shop. These offer a more reliable solution than Just Walk Out. Amazon Fresh stores will also feature self check out counters from now on, for people who aren’t Amazon members.
