I've spent many years in the AWS (Automated Warehousing Solutions) industry. I've seen automated warehouses with huge industrial cranes moving 500 pound drums and tiny little pill box pickers. I've seen systems run 24x7 with almost no human intervention unless a robot drops something. How the hell did it take them this long to get some basic pickers running.
I can only think their warehouses are just a clusterfuck of different items in the same bin or whatever they call it. If so their inventory system was shit to begin with.
I think it's not just this but anything created by computers is now called AI. I read an article in Wired that had me throwing the magazine out the window about how close we are to true machine learning.
We're not even close, as a software engineer I fucking hate things called AI. True AI is so far from us it's redonkulous. Yeah it triggers me whenever I see LOOK AI MADE THIS!!
