I’m considering autonomous checkout, but don’t know where to start.

Imagine a world where customers can walk in, grab what they need, and leave without waiting in line or stopping to scan and pay. Well, some retailers are already living in this world, opening stores monthly. Come to this session to learn from the c-stores and CPG companies that have partnered to open AI-powered checkout free stores that have changed the nature of convenience forever. In addition to better in-store customer experience, these companies will talk about using low-touch autonomous checkout to drive better margin amid today's labor shortage.


  • Learn the ins and outs of opening a checkout free store using computer vision through real-world examples
  • Discuss the opportunities and challenges of retail operations in an autonomous environment
  • Go deep on the impact of autonomous checkout to drive value for retailers
  • Discuss a retailer’s path to implementing autonomous checkout, without having to shut the store down
