First, I defined some important terms surrounding automation (automatic, systemize, optimize).

After learning about automation, I looked into Amazon warehouses and technology.

Amazon is widely successful because of their speed, intelligence, and consistency, thanks to the implementation of smart technology and robots in Amazon warehouses. Amazon drones process orders 4x faster than humans, and delivery fleets use a system called “Anticipatory Shipping” to eliminate fulfillment time.

A few concerns regarding AI technology could be jobs (including wages, working conditions), ethics, privacy, and safety.

From there, I found the topic of wearable technology in warehouses and did some research on smart glasses and human-assisting robots.
