We believe that a civilisation revolution will come with the arrival of quantic computation
South Korean convenience-store chain GS25, owned by GS Retail, has opened a futuristic convenience store without a checkout counter in Jung District, Seoul this week.
The store, which is located in the headquarters building of a local credit card company BC Card, is similar to Amazon Go, checkout-free offline malls in the US.
One can enter the convenience store by scanning a BC Paybook QR code from BC Card’s mobile payment app at the speed gate.
When customers enter the store, 34 ‘deep-learning cameras’ will recognise their behaviour. In addition, some 300 weight sensors installed throughout the store detects the number of items that customers choose.
