Checkout-less supermarkets

From The Panel, 4:29 pm on 23 January 2018

Amazon has opened a supermarket in Seattle with no checkouts. Customers scan an app on their phones as they walk in and shop as they like. Cameras and sensors track the items they buy, all in the name of making things faster, easier and more convenient. We ask the panelists if they're ready for the future or if these digital advances are worrying.
