Intel’s Joe Jensen explains why retail is embracing AI at the Edge


Joe Jensen is a vice president in the IoT Group and the general manager of the Retail Solutions Division at Intel which has been pioneering the usage of artificial intelligence in the retail industry for more than a decade.

Jensen joined the company in 1984 as a product engineer and holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from South Dakota State University and an MBA degree from Arizona State University.
