Grocery Expiration Date: Automate or Die?
September 18, 2019
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Here’s today’s Buzz: In a Kantar Retail study, only 2% of US food and alcohol sales are made online. 84% of respondents in a 2017 Morgan Stanley study prefer to grocery shop in person. But change is coming to grocery! Supermarket chain Kroger plans to partner with Nuro on a driverless food delivery service. The futuristic grocery, kickstarted in 2016 by Amazon Go, offers a connected grocery store with no checkouts using deep learning, computer vision, and sensor fusion. Microsoft and Kroger announced data-driven connected grocery stores in Ohio and Washington. At Food Lion, Marty the Robot clean-sweeps the store a dozen times daily, scans shelves for out-of-stocks and ensures shelf pricing is aligned with front-end registers. We’ll ask four experts if legacy grocery stores have an expiration date: Bill Bishop, Brick Meets Click; John Lert, Alert Innovation; Scott DeGraeve, Locai Solutions; Will Treasure, Javelin Group.
