Amazon Go Opens New Shopping Experience

Amazon has opened Amazon Go, a new kind of store with no checkout required. With its Just Walk Out Shopping experience, shoppers simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take the products they want, and go.
Its checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by the same types of technologies used in self-driving cars: computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning. The Just Walk Out technology automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When a shopper is done shopping, they can just leave the store. Shortly after, their Amazon account will be charged. All consumers need is an Amazon account, a supported smartphone, and the free Amazon Go app.
