Most inventory loss in the retail sector occurs in traditional stores at the POS. The increased use of security personnel in stores involves a large cost with limited value. More focus on training is required for retail loss prevention. New AI-based automated systems using Dell EMC hardware and special purpose deep learning models from Malong provide cost-effective tools to reduce inventory loss. NVIDIA’s development of lower-cost GPUs for use with pretrained models in retail applications that require high scalability with low latency evaluation also help address inventory loss. The combination of Dell EMC hardware with NVIDIA GPUs and Malong software provide a complete solution that is easy to deploy and maintain. The solution can satisfy the demanding needs of retail loss prevention by improving margins while remaining largely transparent to the customer’s shopping experience.
