Dear MEL Topic Readers
Amazon is using AI in almost everything it does
Amazon started its business as an online bookstore, added CDs and videos, and diversified into a mass retailer, selling almost everything. Soon, they offered their online store, warehousing and shipping & delivery infrastructures to other sellers as Amazon Marketplace. They also offered their computing platforms to individuals, companies and even governments as on-demand, cloud services, called Amazon Web Services, or AWS. Amazon also developed some consumer electronic products such as Kindle and Echo. They now have a plan to add thousands of brick-and-mortar stores called Amazon Go where shoppers can simply grab what they want and leave the store without stopping.
You may already have known, heard of, or experienced these Amazon’s business activities. But what is there behind these advanced technologies and services?
Enjoy watching the video and learn what roles AI plays behind Amazon.
