NEW YORK CITY -- Malong Technologies, a leader in asset protection and other AI-based solutions for retailers worldwide, is showcasing its success deploying Santa Clara, CA-based Nvidia's EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform as part of the company's debut at the National Retail Federation's Retail's Big Show 2020 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Jan. 12-14. At the show, Malong is featured in the exhibit of Dell Technologies, one of the company's partners.

New York City-based Malong's RetailAI Cabinet enables practical self-serve shopping with the familiar format of a vending machine, but with significantly lower cost and improved customer experience. By embedding product recognition within the cabinet, a "store" can be almost anywhere, according to Malong Technologies.

Its RetailAI Protect provides state-of-the-art AI for loss prevention at self-checkout and staffed lanes. Leveraging product-recognition technologies, the system accurately identifies and stops common scan errors as they happen -- including mis-scans and ticket-switching -- while helping to protect customer privacy.

RetailAI Fresh solves for the time-consuming and error-prone experience that grocery store customers today struggle with when weighing fresh products on a self-serve scale. This solution retrofits traditional scales, enabling recognition of fresh products automatically -- even while bagged.

"Innovative retailers are reinventing retail with AI to create intelligent stores that deliver incredible customer experiences while optimizing store operations and logistics," said Azita Martin, general manager of AI for Retail at Nvidia. "From intelligent self-checkouts to smart recommender systems, computer vision systems like Malong's RetailAI solutions accelerated by Nvidia EGX are bringing the compute power of AI to the edge, creating intelligent stores."

Scott emphasized that Malong's relationships with Nvidia, Dell and other global technology leaders as key to the company's initial success with the largest of the world's retailers.
