Amazon is licensing its cashier-less grocery store technology

A few years ago, Amazon opened its first cashier free grocery store, using cameras and AI technology to monitor and charge the customer as it picks products from the shelf.

A natural step for amazon one might think, to deliver and commercialize on the technology rather than to operate their own grocery stores.
