Stories about AI-enabled Digital Transformation in Retail and the Lowes home renovation robot that will guide you in the store to find what you are looking for #AI #robot #retail | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The robots, made by Fellow Robots, use a 3-D scanner to
detect people as they into stores. Shoppers can search for
items by asking the bot what they want or typing items
into a touch screen. The bot can guide them to those
items using smart laser sensors, similar to the technology
used in autonomous vehicles. The LoweBot also scans
shelves using computer vision to send up-to-date
information to store associates, even while it is showing
people around the store. Inventory tracking may seem
mundane and boring, but is incredibly important to a
retailer.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: with labour shortage and minimum wage increase you will see experiments like this one flourish in retail stores. Not certain that a robot like this will be helpful nor that it will meet the marketing definition of enhanced customer experience in store... But it sure will address a major pain of mine: finding a sales rep in a RONA store on weekends!

The Albertsons Cos. is embracing robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) to automate and save costs on ecommerce fulfillment.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: warehouse automation is a major component of retail ecommerce digital transformation. As more orders go online, the speed and cost of order preparation must be reduced. Amazon has invested heavily in the field buying KIVA robots in 2014. Now other retailers, especially in the grocery field, are also moving from manual picking to automation because they have the volume. In fact, this may be a sign of the future: grocery retailers may become leaders in the digital transformation, moving away from their current position as dead last.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng màu sắc trắng đen, thiết kế rất ưa nhìn từ mọi phía. Đối với những khách hàng thích mẫu mã đơn giản, tinh tế và phong cách sản phẩm này có những ưu điểm của thiết kế Bắc Âu tối giản.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng nếu nhìn từ phía sau, có hình dạng rất giống một quả trứng lớn, vui nhộn và hài hước, mọi người không thể không yêu nó ngay từ cái nhìn đầu tiên. Do hình dạng tích hợp, các tay vịn thông thường trong ghế nhân viên văn phòng. Ghế hình vỏ trứng được thiết kế lại đã thay thế bằng tay vịn cố định. Tuy nhiên, đệm trên tay vịn khá dày, và khuỷu tay được đặt trên đỉnh để cảm nhận rõ ràng sự hỗ trợ của phần tay ghế.


Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng VC02

1.Thiết kế ghế nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng

Mẫu ghế nhân viên hình vỏ trứng thông qua một đệm ngồi tương đối dày, và nó mềm mại và hỗ trợ khi ngồi làm việc. Sự thoải mái khi ngồi tốt hơn ghế xoay văn phòng giá rẻ. Phần lưng bằng lưới thoáng khí mà không cảm thấy lạnh vào mùa đông. Nó cũng không phải là dễ dàng để đổ mồ hôi trong mùa hè. Lưới được sử dụng ở mặt sau của ghế, độ dẻo dai rất tốt, không cảm thấy bị hụt hẫng ở lưng và hỗ trợ hiệu quả các cơ bắp.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng VC01 2. Tiện ích của ghế nhân viên vỏ trứng

Với chức năng của ghế xoay nhân viên vỏ trứng thật thoải mái cho người sử dụng. Tay cầm điều chỉnh, ghế có thể được nâng lên tự do để đạt được vị trí ngồi tối ưu với bàn làm việc. Ngoài chức năng nâng cơ bản của ghế nhân viên văn phòng, mẫu ghế hình vỏ trứng nhỏ gọn cũng có chức năng ngả tựa 120°. Phương pháp vận hành chính thức là chỉ việc kéo cần điều khiển, tựa lưng vào ghế sau đó nhả ra. Quý khách có thể tận hưởng niềm vui bồng bềnh êm ái cũng như mang đến cho bạn một tâm trạng tốt. Tuy nhiên, sản phẩm cũng có những khiếm khuyết như là trọng lượng của phụ nữ thường không đủ để ép ghế thấp xuống khi cần.

3.Ghế nhân viên vỏ trứng phù hợp không gian làm việc.

Một mẫu ghế nhân viên văn phòng tốt, trước hết, cần phải được thoải mái khi ngồi làm việc. Tiếp theo là ngoại hình đẹp cũng như giá trị cao. Tuy nhiên, một chiếc ghế xoay văn phòng cao và chắc chắn, nhưng nếu căn phòng nhỏ thì cũng không phù hợp.  Ghế nhân viên dành cho nữ hình vỏ trứng không chỉ có hình dạng sinh động, mà còn giảm đáng kể không gian, đặc biệt thích hợp cho văn phòng không gian nhỏ.

4. Kết luận.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng mẫu mới của Hòa Phát Group được giới thiệu thực sự dễ thương. Sản phẩm phù hợp với văn phòng có yêu cầu cao về giá trị thẩm mĩ. Mặc dù tựa lưng ngắn bù lại sự hỗ trợ của đệm ngồi đàn hồi êm ái. Kích thước nhỏ rất thích hợp để sử dụng trong một không gian nhỏ. Khi cần muốn đặt nó dưới gầm bàn, bạn cũng có thể làm giảm chiều cao của ghế. Nếu quý khách cần tìm hiểu thêm về các dòng ghế dành cho nữ xin truy cập hoaphat.website/ Hân hạnh đón tiếp bạn!

This AI Drone Can Be Controlled by Your Eyes - opens opportunities in many fields including disabilities #AI #drone #enhancedVision | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Piloting a drone or an unmanned vehicle by only using your gaze sounds like a scene out of a science fiction movie, but now it’s a reality. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, and collaborators developed a deep learning system that uses NVIDIA GPUs to enable a user to control a drone by simply directing their eyes towards where they want to steer.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: being able to control devices without your hand - using eyes or voice - is still being explored. I find this a great example of merging new technologies - drone, eye gazing, AI - to expand digital transformation beyond the current scope envisioned today.

Humans+AI working together brings benefits across 5 areas in a study of 1,500 Companies #AI #BigTrends @HBR | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Companies benefit from optimizing collaboration between humans and artificial intelligence. Five principles can help them do so: Reimagine business processes; embrace experimentation/employee involvement; actively direct AI strategy; responsibly collect data; and redesign work to incorporate AI and cultivate related employee skills. A survey of 1,075 companies in 12 industries found that the more of these principles companies adopted, the better their AI initiatives performed in terms of speed, cost savings, revenues, or other operational measures.

You’re surrounded by disruption and rapid change. Maybe you’re looking for solutions. A way to seize opportunities. We all are. It’s a sprint to stay ahead of technology. Blockchain. Automation. AI. Cybersecurity. It will forever change the way accounting is done. And forever change those who do it. It’s time to reset, redefine and reskill. The way we learn. The way we work. And the way we move forward. Here, you’ll find what you need to not just survive, but adapt and thrive. And disrupt disruption.

#AI, #Automation and #BigData will create more jobs by 2030 than they will eliminate according to @McKinsey #Tech4Good | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Additional economic growth, including from business dynamism and rising productivity growth, will also continue to create jobs. Many other new occupations that we cannot currently imagine will also emerge and may account for as much as 10 percent of jobs created by 2030, if history is a guide. Moreover, technology itself has historically been a net job creator. For example, the introduction of the personal computer in the 1970s and 1980s created millions of jobs not just for semiconductor makers, but also for software and app developers of all types, customer-service representatives, and information analysts.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is a positive news about new technologies. However we must brace ourselves because many people will loose their jobs and not have the skills - or the willingness - to adapt. This will certainly create turmoil in companies - and possible whole countries. Prepare.

'Super Monster Wolf' a success in Japan farming trials

'Super Monster Wolf' a success in Japan farming trials | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

When it detects an approaching animal, its eyes light up and it starts to howl, Asahi TV says. Its manufacturers say the robot wolf uses solar-rechargeable batteries and has a range of howl noises so that animal threats don't get used to it.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we think of robots as solutions for manufacturing problems but the real disruption will come from devices such as this one that "attack" problems outside the factory (pun intended ;-).

more...
Blake Huffman's curator insight, March 19, 2018 12:54 PM

People are trying to work on a new project to help with farming. This "wolf" is measured at 65 cm long and 50 cm tall. It is used to scare away animals that are trying to eat the crops. The creators said that the wolf is solar powered. It also has a loud howl noise that scares things away.

 

I think that these so called wolfs are definitely needed. I have know people who have had animals eat their crops and I can understand how bad that hurts farmers. It could also help farmers increase their profit from crops because there will be more to sell. Every farmer should have one of these wolfs.

Will robots completely replace humans from textile factory floors? sewBots is a new #robots that can #manufacture a t-shirt in half the time of a human HT @ADumas | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

A lot of the work that goes into making a t-shirt or a pair of jeans has been automated, except for cutting and sewing. Now machines are taking over one of these last surviving manual jobs, which humans have performed for hundreds of years.

This article is one more example of this trend: robots are now cheaper, faster, and generally better than humans at doing repetitive tasks. So much so that robots can manufacture clothes better than humans can. See the videos here: http://softwearautomation.com/digital-t-shirt-workline/

If Workers Slack Off, the Wristband Will Know. (And #Amazon Has a Patent for It.) - #wearables are finding their way onto the shop and this is inevitable | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The e-commerce giant has won two patents for a tracking technology that can nudge a human hand in the right direction — toward a warehouse bin, say.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: wearables offer the potential to help track our every move, providing a trove of information to improve health and work. Already there is proof that Apple watches can detect heart attacks. If this patent from 2016 by Amazon is built into a product and deployed, work productivity can improve as well. Of course this may have serious implications for privacy or work requirements, but we must get used to it. With robots falling in price and AI letting them do more and more human-level tasks, the future of work is bound to be measured much more closely than it is today.

1.7 million items a day across its four fulfilment centres
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: On the heals of recent technology deals between Ocado and Carrefour in France and Sobeys in Canada, this paper and others explain how the technology works.

HUMAN-LESS WAREHOUSE

The technology is akin to a huge vending machine, where products are stored in compartments that robots can access when required. More important is that this technology can apply to any product you can buy online, not only grocery. In fact, figuring grocery item picking is probably the most difficult product category - with 3 temperature items (room, cold, frozen) and lots of small and delicate products (think tomatoes and meat). This will help reduce the cost and errors of web order fulfilment, and potentially speed delivery to make 1hr delays possible. When coupled with robot manipulation and self-driving delivery vans, the days of human-free order preparation and delivery is fast approaching.

RETAIL ARMAGGEDON

This will revolutionize the way we think of retail and distribution by making the store useless. The value chain will become produce-warehouse-home.

One vital control while making your standard promotion configuration is to keep it perfect and straightforward. Try not to enable any pomposity to demolish your style. Ensure you have included headings to your website page on the banner ad design with glimmering content or sound. On the off chance that your flag advertisement configuration is well done free Reprint Articles, the potential customers will give careful consideration your business merits.
