10:20 AM Disruptive Robotics and AI: Beyond the Future of Online Grocery Retail

The future of online grocery retail is today. Already artificial intelligence, robotics and automation are fundamentally liberalising online grocery shopping by enabling consumers to shop with less friction and greater delight. These cutting-edge technologies have allowed us to go full-circle to the times when the local grocer knew about our individual preferences and dietary needs and could make tailored recommendations. Today, consumers can benefit from their very own virtual stores and shop through different lenses: organic, vegan, Polish, gluten-free. This talk takes a look how these technologies could shape a future in which consumers can be delivered fresh food from farm to fork in a matter of hours. Looking ahead, we'll outline how the competencies, technology, IP and know-how that makes this possible can be applied to solve many complex problems beyond grocery for a wider societal impact.
