Review: Amazon Go

By Sameer Bhale

Hey guys, want to check out something extraordinary, something awesome and interesting?? Here I am introducing the brand-new technology based concept “Amazon Go” by Amazon! Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no check out required. Amazon created the world’s most advance shopping technology so you never have to wait in line. Just walk in, grab food, and walk out again.

So how it works? This is the interesting question. Let’s see it, Customers tap their cellphones on a turnstile as they walk into the store, which logs them into the store’s network and connects to their Amazon account through an app. Then It uses machine learning algorithms, sensors, artificial intelligence to track items customers pick up. These are then added to the virtual cart of their app. If they pick up an item they later decide they don’t want, putting it back on the shelf removes it from their virtual cart. This is the best thing they have implemented. It uses deep learning with sensors and AI also. This type of technology used in self-driving cars. The Seattle based company calls it, “just walk out technology”. When the customer leaves, the app adds up everything the customer has taken and charges their Amazon account. Amazon said it began to work on the project in 2012. Wow! It is currently tested by Amazon employees at the location at 2131 7th Ave, Seattle, WA, on the corner of 7th Avenue, near Amazon’s offices.

           

A person with amazon account, supported smartphone and the free Amazon Go app can start shopping at Amazon Go start directly. The store is roughly 1,800 square feet of retail space conveniently compact so busy customers can get in and out fast. Amazon further said they offer delicious ready to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options made fresh every day by their onsite chefs and favorite local kitchens and bakeries. You’ll find well-known brands at Amazon go. The world is getting digitalize very quickly now a day. Everyone has a smartphone now and no one wants to wait for any reason in a queue. So, Amazon found solution on it which is described above. Computer science is a field in which we can put our best up to infinity, so they did it. I think this is a very excellent concept introduce by Amazon, hope they will open their outlets at many different places worldwide soon. The current store will open public in early 2017. Wish them best luck for this new and amazing concept.
