According to The Jiji News, Japanese retail giant Aeon Co. has said it will launch a new online supermarket this summer that uses artificial intelligence to present customers with a list of recommended items based on their purchase records.
The more shoppers use the AI service, the more accurate the list of recommended items will become, according to the company.
The service handles up to 50,000 items, including fresh vegetables, foods, and daily necessities. Delivery can be specified in one-hour increments between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. on the day after the order is placed, with notification sent via e-mail just prior to arrival. Delivery fees vary depending on the time of day and day of the week, and range from 330 to 550 Japanese yen. Deliveries are made by staff trained in customer service.
