In the context of the continuous growth of the supermarket industry and the diversification of available products, retail management becomes an increasingly difficult job, due to the high number of diverse tasks that must be successfully covered by the available staff. These tasks are essential for ensuring client satisfaction through better services. Some of these services may include continuously monitoring for damaged, expired or deteriorated products, for empty shelves or aisles and ensuring security against theft for expensive or premium products. We propose to cover these needs by implementing AI methods over the existing security camera infrastructure.
