Who is Sensei?

It is estimated that we spend, on average, two years of our lives waiting in lines. In a world with almost eight billion people, waiting in lines is likely the most significant waste of productive capacity and human life in the world. This is why we decided to create Sensei, setting the mission to change the world of retail. Since 2017, we’re devoted to designing the most advanced and state-of-the-art store automation system that enables both shoppers and retailers to experience a new way of shopping. Through AI-powered computer vision systems, sensor fusion, and unique algorithms, we have been the first European company to launch an autonomous store, where customers grab what they want and leave, without having to scan products or wait in line to pay.
