Amazon's Grab-And-Go Grocery, The Trouble With Ethical AI, Airlines Optimized, Few-Shot Learning
Last week, I mentioned that one difference between traditional software and AI products is the problem of unclear technical feasibility. In short, it can be hard to tell whether it’s practical to build a particular AI system. That’s why it’s
No Cashier? No Problem
Shoppers at Amazon’s newest grocery store can skip the checkout line. What’s new: Amazon opened its first full-scale supermarket that monitors which items customers place in their cart and charges them automatically when they leave. It calls the system Just Walk Out.
