Amazon Go: More Questions than Answers for Retail

Amazon Go offers Just Walk Out Shopping, which leverages computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep-learning technologies to enable checkout-less shopping sprees within its 1,800-sq.ft. retail space. The store offers a variety of ready-to-eat meal, snack options, and meal kits, alongside grocery staples.
