  • Both cool and disturbing. I believe that people should focus on relationships and we should use robotics / AI to handle the jobs that aren't relationship based. As long as you know what you want to buy, a fully automated store is great. If you have questions or want something custom, then a person that knows the products and can delve deeper is needed in the process.

    I totally agree with this.  As a society already I feel we are all walking around with our heads in our screens which I already have mixed feelings about and I am a tech guy.  I love new technology and I am very curious about where the future is headed in that regard.  The idea of an unmanned store is very cool but what happens to the people who worked in convenience stores.  My thoughts on what IoT, AR and AI are bringing to life is that it is amazing but who or what is managing all of this.  Hell I feel there is so many cloud based software's and technologies out there that are empowering users that as a manager of an IT environment I will eventually have to adapt or die.  Soon companies will need only an internet connection and SaaS with support.

  • It's funny. A bunch of exec's making 100K + per year are standing in the photo with smiles on their faces because they saved $10/hour jobs for Lenovo.  So backwards

  • Why are any employees there then? Can't they set up a camera and judge the user experience from the office?
