A2Z Smart Technologies announces collaboration with Edgify to improve the Cust2Mate shopping experience
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / November 11, 2021 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. (“A2Z” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AZ) (OTCQB: AAZZF), announced today that it will integrate AI-based software from Edgify in Cust2Mate carts, to enhance the capabilities of the smart cart for automatic detection of barcode-less items (fruits and vegetables). Edgify’s software offers 99.98% accuracy. Cust2Mate will use Edgify in all of its carts outside of Israel. Cust2Mate and Edgify will present the combined solution at NRF Retail’s Big Show in New York in January 2022.
Edgify has developed the world’s first framework for training computer vision artificial intelligence (AI) models directly on simple peripheral devices such as SCOs, PC scales and point-of-sale machines.
