Abstract: Retailers around the world have long suffered from poor visibility into store operations and on-shelf inventory, costing them billions in inefficiencies and lost sales. Recently, advances in robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have allowed them to shine a light on the state of the shelf to capture and correct numerous problems including out of stocks, misplaced items and wrong prices.
Bossa Nova is pioneering the development of autonomous robots that scan store aisles and capture data about every product on every shelf, and AI that analyzes the data and delivers actionable information to store associates. Bossa Nova robots are deploying in 350 Walmart stores, scanning 78 million products per day, safely navigating around thousands of shoppers, all in the service of associates to help them restock shelves and improve store performance.
This talk will provide an overview of the key technologies and insights into what it takes to mix robots and humans and scale autonomy.
