Amazon’s New Robot-Run Supermarket Will Phase Out Human Employees

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants his automated grocery store to feature a ground level where shoppers can touch and physically select items — typical food products that people like to touch, beer, fruit, etc. On the second floor, a small army of robots toils away, where they furiously bag items for the customers browsing below.
