SeeChange Technologies, a leader in retail-focused computer vision AI technology, announced a partnership with Diebold Nixdorf, a global leader in designing, enabling and operating relevant retail consumer and staff journeys, to launch the first in a series of AI-powered self-checkout solutions. Diebold Nixdorf’s Vynamic Smart Vision uses SeeWare machine learning to recognize fruits, vegetables, baked goods and items without a barcode.
Diebold Nixdorf has adopted SeeWare, the state-of-the-art recognition platform from SeeChange, as core technology directly integrated into Vynamic Smart Vision, part of the Vynamic Self-Service platform. Using the artificial intelligence in SeeWare, SeeChange’s edge-to-cloud AI platform, Diebold Nixdorf has enabled the integrated application of machine learning to recognize products, reducing friction at self-checkout for an improved buyer experience.
“Our partnership with Diebold Nixdorf is the next step in the evolution of self-service checkout – a smart SCO system that uses visual recognition and AI to recognize purchases,” Jason Souloglou, CEO of SeeChange, said in the announcement. “Fresh Produce Recognition is only the start of a new generation of SCO technology that simplifies customer checkout, cuts transaction times and reduces loss for retailers.”
According to the announcement, Diebold Nixdorf selected SeeWare for its uniquely modular and scalable architecture. SeeWare allows new applications to be added quickly in response to changing market needs. By adopting SeeWare, Diebold Nixdorf can maintain market-leading functionality and performance for POS.
Matt Redwood, vice president, retail technology solutions at Diebold Nixdorf, said in the announcement: “More and more retailers are looking for efficient solutions that reduce friction points, improve the experience for the consumer and drive greater checkout efficiency. The difficulty comes when doing this while also keeping solutions open and flexible to anticipate future changes. SeeChange exactly meets our solution philosophy of Modularity, Openness and Availability, an approach which enables agility and flexibility when innovating.”
SeeChange was founded in 2018 as a subsidiary of Arm, becoming independent in 2021 with investment from Crane Venture Partners.
