Amazon to Share Cashierless Store Data with Brands and Advertisers

Amazon | June 30, 2022

Amazon.com Inc. developed cashierless technology to expedite trips to the grocery store or convenience store. It now wants to use the tracking system to assist brands and advertisers in determining how to sell more products. The company announced plans to share data from its shopper-tracking cameras and sensors in a blog post on Wednesday. Among other things, Amazon would tell brands how many people bought an item pulled from a shelf, how many returned it, and how many bought it later on Amazon.com. The Store Analytics initiative essentially extends the data-mining capabilities of e-commerce to physical stores. Amazon's "Just Walk Out" technology, which was launched in 2018 after years of internal development, is now available in more than 50 Amazon retail locations, including Amazon Go convenience stores and Amazon Fresh grocery stores. The network of overhead cameras and shelf sensors automatically registers and bills shoppers as they exit. If brands find the data useful, Amazon may be able to recoup the enormous costs associated with developing and operating the technology. People working on the project and at competing companies developing cashierless systems have long speculated that data on what items customers consider and how they navigate stores could be profitable. But, according to retail analysts, cashierless shopping is a technological marvel but not yet a commercial success. Brands will have access to details on how their products are discovered, considered, and purchased in applicable stores to help them inform decisions related to selection, promotions, and ad campaigns, according to the blog. The program may resurrect privacy concerns about Amazon's cashierless system. The company stated in the post and accompanying explainer that individual shopper data would not be shared and used the phrase "aggregated and anonymized" ten times. According to Amazon, video and images of shoppers will not be sent to brands, and individual shoppers can opt-out of having their data included in Store Analytics.

Ted Sarandos Talks Netflix’s Potential Ad Partners and More at Cannes

Netflix | June 24, 2022

Netflix’s co-CEO Ted Sarandos was honored as the Cannes Lions 2022 Entertainment Person of the Year award. He took the main stage on June 23 in Netflix’s festival debut. He talked about questions about Netflix’s stock decline and more-is-more content approach while carefully sidestepping ad deal rumors and platform competitors. Sarandos brushed off the specifics on any rumored ad deals and said that Netflix was talking to all potential ad partners. However, he did add that an ideal ad partner had to make it easy for Netflix to enter the ad market. He talked about how Netflix’s initial ad integration is not what he envisaged for the company and that the platform would look at ad operations internally to give it more control. Ultimately, Netflix wants to offer creative ad products ‘better than TV’. He referenced his past life in merchandising for the physical media company West Coast Video, specifically the original release for Top Gun. “If you really love ‘Star Wars’ and Marvel, Disney’s probably the service for you. Our key is, can we have the engagement with consumers such that they will complement it with other subscriptions" -Ted Sarandos co-CEO Netflix Besides the ad deals, Sarandos talked about content and how Netflix looks at it. According to him, Netflix’s advantage is in not just providing content for one person but every subscriber. “If you really love ‘Star Wars’ and Marvel, Disney’s probably the service for you. Our key is, can we have the engagement with consumers such that they will complement it with other subscriptions,,” he said. “People's tastes are so diverse,” he said. “So, every time people say, ‘That's a lot of content,’ I say, ‘It's not all for you.’ And we’re really trying to make your favorite show, my favorite show—they probably don't line up. We do well at that, and then the UI is used to kind of personalize so I find my favorite show. That scales infinitely.” He dispelled the rumor that Netflix was trying to buy out Roku to cover device integration and data capabilities. He stated that Netflix is already ubiquitously distributed on internet-enabled devices and that “we would be better off getting Netflix embedded in every device than we will be competing in the device world.” He discussed Netflix’s support for Dave Chappelle. “We're programming to people with a real variety of tastes and sensibilities and how they were brought up and what they think is offensive, or what they think is damaging to themselves, or their children,” he said. “So the variety of how you can plan the same thing for everybody—it's an impossible feat.” Sarandos said that Netflix’s queer content receives the same support. “I do think supporting expression is really important,” Sarandos said. “I think it's almost impossible for me to censor Dave in the U.S. and then I've got people from all over the world who are super offended by our LGBTQ+ content—they want to take it down and they think it's super harmful; they think it's destroying their society—And not only do we fight for it, we fight it all the way to the Supreme Court and have never take it down anywhere in the world.”
