Coming sooner than you think

This post comes from an article on Medium about how people don’t want to take jobs at grocery stores. I’d left a comment stating it’d be easy to replace the cashiers and the baggers with robotics.

All a cashier does is slide items across a scanner , take cash and coupons and that’s easy to automate. The bagger is slightly harder but a little AI along with computer vision and a couple of arms with some range of motion.

Think about the benefits. Costs for humans to do the jobs are gone. Only ones left are power and preventive maintenance. Plus robots don’t need breaks or food.
