Some Frequently Asked Questions about the Case

How does Viscovery visual recognition system work?

We use state-of-the-art AI computer vision and deep learning technologies to train our models to visually identify items,

In the self-checkout scenario at Hi Noodle, why does Hi Noodle use "cards" to represent noodle dishes?

Since the side dishes and drinks are ready, shoppers can simply choose them for AI identification and checkout.

 

However, for noodle dishes, as they need to be freshly made for better taste, Hi Noodle chooses to use “cards” to facilitate AI recognition. Side dishes, drinks, and noodle cards can be recognized together, significantly reducing the self-checkout time.

Can the AI system recognize identical side dishes even with minor differences in appearance?

We use generative AI and self-supervised AI to train models with the ability to smartly differentiate among similar items or items with variations in appearance, much like how humans recognize things. Therefore, the Viscovery AI-powered Visual Checkout system can identify a wide range of products sold in bakeries, cake shops, micro-markets, convenience stores, supermarkets, cafeterias, canteens, and self-service restaurants.

What are the benefits of implementing Viscovery's AI system at Hi Noodle?
