Standard Cognition Acquires Explorer.ai
Autonomous checkout company Standard Cognition, San Francisco, has acquired Explorer.ai, a mapping and computer vision company that will improve Standard Cognition’s mapping technology. The move adds more engineers to ramp up Standard Cognition’s cashier-less shopping technology. The autonomous shopping technology focuses on cameras with computer vision as artificial intelligence and indoor mapping plays a huge part. That’s what Explorer.ai has focused on, initially working on autonomous cars.
