According to a report by PCMag, Walmart, the world's largest retailer, is planning on using robots to automate certain mundane everyday tasks. Walmart hopes to use automation to “handle tasks that are repeatable, predictable and manual, like scanning shelves for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels.” Multiple stores in Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and California already have robots and now the company is preparing to expand the project to an additional fifty stores.
