The donations will assist in rebuilding the school and providing local children with school supplies. The school is a 10-minute walk from the resort where Majestic Whale Encounters guests stay, meaning travellers may visit the school as part of their whale swim tour.Starting on 23 August, 2016, the 8-day tour will include 5 days of whale swims, giving guests opportunities to swim, snorkel and spot humpback whales in their natural environment. Every year from July to October, the whales migrate to the tropical northern islands of Tonga to mate and give birth, offering swimmers more chances to get to know the gentle mammals. Guests will stay at Sandy Beach Resort Ha’apai where they can bush walk, fish, cycle or just relax during their two leisure days.The tour costs from AU$3941 per person twin share, including the $150 per person discount if booked before 15 October, 2015. The tour includes 7 nights’ accommodation, 5 days on the water with skipper, guide and marine scientist, all main meals, a welcome dinner and all local flights and transfers.For bookings made by 15 October 2015, Majestic Whale Encounters will donate $150 for each person to Faleloa Public School. Flights to Tonga from Australia (5 hours direct) with Virgin Australia are extra.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more

Walmart Is Using AI to Prevent Checkout Theft

Posted on by

first_imgArtificial Intelligence Next Article In a bid to cut down on theft and mistakes, Walmart is using artificial intelligence hooked up to cameras monitoring checkouts to ensure every item in your cart is scanned and paid for. This is already happening at over 1,000 Walmart stores.As Business Insider reports, the system is known internally as Missed Scan Detection and uses computer vision to monitor both manned and self-checkout areas at each store. The system is able to detect when an item goes unscanned, or is mis-scanned, and reports the fault to a checkout attendant who can then approach and rectify the problem.According to Walmart spokeswoman LeMia Jenkins, “Walmart is making a true investment to ensure the safety of our customers and associates … Over the last three years, the company has invested over half a billion dollars in an effort to prevent, reduce and deter crime in our stores and parking lots. We are continuously investing in people, programs and technology to keep our stores and communities safe.”When store inventory disappears without being paid for it’s known as “shrink.” This can happen through theft or mistakes and retailers are obviously very keen to reduce it as much as possible. If Walmart experiences the average for US retailer shrink rates, then it’s losing roughly $4 billion a year. With that in mind, you can see why heavy investment and embracing AI to reduce shrink is worthwhile for the company.One of the companies supplying Walmart with the computer vision tech required to make checkout monitoring possible is Everseen. According to Everseen CEO Alan O’Herlihy, “People make mistakes … In terms of shrinkage, or loss, that’s the main source.” And if you’re wondering which item causes the most problems, it’s milk. O’Herlihy explains, “People find it hard to scan milk … Sometimes they get frustrated and they just don’t scan it.” Over 1,000 stores are using computer vision tech to watch checkouts and ensure no item ever goes unscanned.
