At the Leading Transformation with AI event last May, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella declared that “AI is going to shape all of what we do.” And one of the key areas where this transformation will take place — in fact, it has already taken root — is the retail sector, which has spent the last several years fending off body blows and head shots from e-commerce and the Great Recession.

This type of seamless service tailored to the customer’s taste simply hasn’t been possible in brick-and-mortar shops. …
