Intel: Technology Will Transform the Shopping Experience

Intel’s Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud technologies touch every link of the retail supply chain. IoT sensors capture data that can be analyzed.  Data centers crunch the information and give it real-world usefulness. For example, our technologies can see what items are not in their correct location and the up-to-the-minute store inventory, including what’s in the back room. They can even tell what items go in to changing rooms, but never make it to the cash register.

To help transform how people shop and how shops can better serve them, Intel today is introducing the Intel® Responsive Retail Platform (Intel® RRP). It will deliver a deep understanding of how stores and people interact. And, over the next five years, Intel plans to invest $100 million in the retail industry with this new platform. The investment will enable retailers to unify every part of their operations, create a positive impact on their bottom line, and solve longstanding business challenges.
