Created in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, Amazon is an American marketplace based in Seattle. There are electronics, books and everyday objects.

In 2015, 230,000 people worked in the company’s 20 giant American warehouses. These warehouses now also “employ” robots (articulated arms or the Kiva rolling robot).

Amazon would record a turnover of 140 billion dollars in 2016, against 500,000 dollars in 1995. That same year, the company is valued at 364 billion dollars.

Today, Amazon has different projects like the cashless supermarket.
