Welcome to Walmart IRL — or Intelligent Retail Lab.
Walmart transitioned a 50,000 square foot Neighborhood Market in Levittown, New York for the project.
The new concept is designed to test the use of artificial intelligence in retail stores.
First up: product inventory and availability. The store will use a combination of both cameras and analytics to trigger out-of-stock alerts for employees when a customer takes the last item, so the store can quickly restock.
