What is Automation?

Automation is delegation of tasks to another entity (machines or humans), thereby freeing up an individual’s capacity for more meaningful work. Automation kills boredom and unlocks the staffs' creative potential.

Walmart has also rolled out virtual-reality headsets to train associates (employees), as well as the FAST Unloader technology to automate the backrooms of stores. If recent headlines are any indication, the adoption of these technologies by retailers will accelerate.Walmart is also using technology to automate its supply chain. The company unveiled “Eden” in 2018, a food safety inspection technology that automatically screens a product for defects. Walmart applied for a series of farming-related patents in March 2018, which include machine vision and drone technology designed to monitor crop damage and identify corrective action.
