Today's Fast Five Tue, 06 Sep 2022
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans! Labor Day weekend has come and gone, which means the kids are back to school, Groceryshop is just weeks away, and the Arizona Cardinals are certain to find new ways to depress me on Sundays.

Before we get to today’s headlines, first we want to draw your attention to a new article I just published today on Omni Talk — “Today’s Smart Store Is Tomorrow’s Sustainable Store.”

As many of you know, I have already said Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology is already the greatest retail innovation of the next 30 years, and this new article goes deeper into why.

It explains what a smart store is and why computer vision may also be at the heart of something retail needs even more than checkout-free retail, i.e. a path to a more sustainable future.
