Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talks Fans! Today Anne and I have gone back to our roots, as we bring you another exciting podcast from our Omni Talk Spotlight Series, the series that started it all.

We turned our spotlight on Rafay's CEO Haseeb Budhani and HP's VP of Retail and Industry Solutions Cory McElroy and asked them to educate us on how retailers should think about the puts and takes of deploying computer vision at scale.

With today's skills shortage and labor shortage, today's podcast is another example of how moving retail activities to the cloud can pay off huge in the long-run.

You can give the podcast a listen by clicking here or on the main image above.

In today's Fast Five Headlines, coming off Anne's Mom's weekend:

Walmart is trying to woo college graduates with tantalizing dreams of one day running their own Walmart store and making upwards of $210,000 per year. (Read More)
Instacart (perhaps too) quietly filed for an IPO last week. (Read More)
Zara started charging U.K. customers for returns. (Read More)
While Happy Returns and Loop have partnered together to make returns even easier. (Read More)
And Kohl's finally told its big, bad activist investors to stick it where the sun doesn't shine. (Read More)

Be careful out there,

-- Chris, Anne, and the entire Omni Talk team

P.S. I have not talked to Anne since last Thursday. Here's hoping she and the moms tied one on with some of that Grey Poupon wine that we talked about in last week's Fast Five podcast.

P.P.S. You can still register for our live events on LinkedIn this week with Scandit's CTO Christian Floerkermeier and Talkdesk's Genesis Miranda Longo and Antonio Gonzalez.

All you need to do is just click on whichever event most floats your boat (or both) right below this sentence.
