We already live in challenging times and as retail leaders we deal with changing shopping habits, channel shifts, economic and political uncertainty and disruptive new competitors on a daily basis. The next wave of disruption is firmly upon us - intelligence and advanced robotics will transform the retail model as it will many other industries.

In this paper we provide context what is happening in other industries, debunk some myths and draw conclusions about what the technology can and can’t do. Overall we aim to bring some clarity to the practical application of both physical and cognitive automation in the Retail model.
