Kindred Robots Are Learning to Grab and Sort Clothing in a Warehouse for the Gap

Next time you shop online for jeans or T-shirts from the Gap, you may have artificial intelligence to thank when the correct items arrive on your doorstep.

WHY IT MATTERS: forecasts are that robots will outnumber human workers in Amazon warehouses by 2020. This trial from GAP goes along in that direction: remotely-controlled robots with AI help prepare orders in the warehouse. This tech should be on everyone’s strategic plan for distribution and logistics in the coming years.
