Standard Cognition

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

After participating in Y Combinator’s summer 2017 round, Standard Cognition is in a race to release the first commercially available checkout-free shopping system driven by artificial intelligence. The system uses AI to let customers shop, grab things, and go, without the need for scanning items or standing in a checkout line. If that sounds familiar, it’s because Amazon is making headlines for a similar concept: an automated convenience store called Amazon Go, which is tied to Amazon’s walled garden of a shopping ecosphere. Standard Cognition is positioning itself as an alternative, one that will be made available to all retailers—helping them reduce labor costs and boost profits, all while creating a near-frictionless experience for customers.
