Bots As A Biz Model

Cast your mind back to 2014, and you'll likely remember a subscription box for most products: everything from coffee, wine, and beer to make-up, tampons, and razors could be found neatly packaged and delivered to the doormat for your convenience (after all, running out of coffee on a Sunday morning when your warehouse conversion is served only by a downtrodden convenience shop is pretty horrible). And please don't take my wry smile as sarcastic nostalgia for three years ago: subscription boxes are still going strong. My personal favourite? Fresh cut flowers through my letterbox. But there's a new kid on the business model block.
