Walmart is trying out a new approach to serving the customer with their new AI system called intelligent retail lab (IRL).

The store, which recently opened in New York state, is fine tuned to be the perfect customer experience. The system controls availability and stock quality, guaranteeing you exactly what you need.

It genuinely sounds like online shopping IRL. My question is, how many jobs will this replace? While the AI is only in beta, it is worth the consideration. What is the next step if IRL becomes nationwide?
