Walmart will soon use hundreds of A.I. robot janitors to scrub the floors of US stores

Quote
The world's largest retailer by revenue will soon have autonomous robots scrubbing the floors of hundreds of Walmart stores across the U.S. Walmart will deploy 360 floor-scrubbing robots armed with computer vision and AI capabilities in hundreds of its stores by the end of January 2019, the company said this week in a joint press release with San Diego-based AI company Brain Corporation.

.......

Walmart has already deployed robots to take over other work usually performed by human employees, including using shelf-scanning robots in dozens of US stores to search for inventory and prices while also locating misplaced items.

Walmart is looking to rely more and more on automation in the future — an evolution that could free up current employees to perform more efficient, higher value tasks, but which some critics worry could also result in lower wages and fewer jobs at a company that is currently America's largest private employer with over 1.5 million paid workers.

Amazon and Walmart add more robots, but insist they won’t terminate jobs

>insist they won’t terminate jobs

Like compound interest, attrition is a helluva force.  And it lets company PR departments make technically true bullshit statements.

Ground based delivery dogs make more sense than delivery drones.

There is a bit of a lesson in the Boeing 737 MAX debacle.  That plane has machine overrides flight controls of the pilot when ithe hidden autopilot concludes the plane is heading into a stall.  It looks like they have been working with malfunctioning parts that are sending false data.  This results in the pitch on the tail wing forcing the airplanes down and the yokes set up to resist human override by causing more resistance on pulling up than diving down.

So, humans died because Boeing had more faith in the AI of those systems than human judgment.

Perhaps the right idea, too soon.

>too soon.

The thing about AI is that as long as it is based on human design and decision logic it will still be as fallible as any other human endeavor.
