Shopping for artificial intelligence: how emerging technology is remaking the retail sector

Oxford Economics research shows that AI’s impact on retailers is just beginning

Oxford Economics surveyed 324 executives across seven US retail sub-sectors in late 2018.

Early leaders are focused on getting strategic value from AI—and are seeing a range of business results.
