If you’re planning to add personalized services to your stores that harness the latest Edge AI technologies to boost customer loyalty and increase staff efficiency, check out the VIA Smart Retail Engagement System at the VIA booth at Embedded World 2019.
Smart Retail Engagement
With the advent of edge AI technology, brick and mortar retailers now have the tools to fight back against online shopping. Keen to remove as much friction as possible from retail transactions, online and offline stores are embracing AI with stellar adoption rates.
The power of facial recognition technology is proving divisive. The systems are already being used to improve security, identify missing people and deliver smart personalised services, but there’s genuine concern that the technology could lead to a ‘Big Brother’ surveillance society.
We’re arguably at the start of the facial recognition revolution. Greater computing power, edge processing, cloud computing and artificial intelligence are making systems ever smarter, giving them the ability to understand how people are reacting, as well as what they look like.
Edge Computing has the potential to be revolutionary. Moving processing and intelligence away from the cloud, and close to IoT devices, can deliver huge benefits in the way data can be acted upon, changing the way that business is done.
