Every once in a while, a unique technology application causes a paradigm shift in an entire industry.
Take GPS trackers and sensors, which made our commutes more efficient, or cloud technology which changed the very idea of data storage.
In the retail industry, the automation of product inventory checks in physical stores using artificial intelligence (AI) technologies like Computer Vision (CV), Gorilla Custom Works (GCW), Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) promises to not only change the way retailers sort and stock products, but also how consumers shop in stores.
CV solutions come in a range of avatars. For example, a basic CV solution would replicate existing manual store auditing processes by simply sensing gaps in the shelf. But this may not quite address your needs.
