Walmart has been surveilling its checkout registers in the US using an AI-driven computer vision technology called Missed Scan Detection to identify when items move past the scanner without having been scanned. The technology has been implemented in more than 1,000 stores across the US over the past two years, and it monitors both self-checkout kiosks and traditional registers managed by human cashiers.
