Fast Company Recognizes Standard as AI Game Changer

May 4, 2021

We are thrilled to announce that Standard has been selected as an Honorable Mention in the AI and Data category as part of Fast Company 2021 World Changing Ideas Awards. These awards honor the businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to pursuing innovation when it comes to solving health and climate crises, social injustice, or economic inequality.

According to Fast Company, this year they saw the largest number of entries they’ve ever received for these awards. A panel of eminent Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 4,000 entries across transportation, education, food, politics, technology, and more, and we’re proud to have Standard’s AI-powered computer vision platform recognized as a World Changing Idea in AI and Data.

At Standard, we believe that Spatial Computing and Computer Vision have the potential to be bigger than mobile or the Internet. When computers can see and learn, they have the ability to evolve a physical space into digital experiences and change what’s possible in a room. Standard is a pioneer in Computer Vision-based systems, its patented machine learning-based platform used by retailers around the world to reimagine what’s possible in a shopping experience. Using only AI-powered cameras mounted on the ceiling, these retailers can now offer a groundbreaking new way to shop that eliminates long lines.

The last year was a very busy one for Standard – we landed significant new customers including Circle K and worked with customer Compass Group to open its first public stores at the University of Houston and in office buildings in Charlotte and Toronto. With the most mature team, most funding raised and real stores open, we are heads and shoulders above other companies in this space and appreciate this recognition from Fast Company.

As we further develop our AI technology and work with more retailers across the globe, Standard will continue to create frictionless shopping experiences that will dramatically change retail as we know it today. For more information, please visit or check out how it works here.
