Chip labour: Robots replace waiters in China restaurant

芯片劳动力:中国餐馆里机器人代替了服务员



The futuristic restaurant concept is the latest initiative in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba's push to modernise service and retail in a country where robotics and artificial intelligence are increasingly being integrated into commerce. Raising efficiency and lowering labour costs are the objectives at Alibaba's "Robot.He" diners, where waiters have been replaced by robots about the size of microwave ovens, which roll around the dining room on table-high runways. The diners are attached to Alibaba's new Hema chain of semi-automated supermarkets, where grocery shoppers fill their "carts" on a mobile app and have the merchandise brought to them at checkout via conveyor tracks on the ceiling, or delivered straight to their homes.

在中国,机器人和人工智能越来越多的应用到商业领域,而中国的电子商务巨头阿里巴巴致力于对服务和零售进行现代化,其最新的一个想法就是未来式的餐馆概念。提高效率和降低人工成本是阿里巴巴机器人餐馆的目标,微波炉大小的机器人替代了服务员,这些机器人在桌子高的路线上为顾客提供服务。这种餐馆依附于阿里巴巴新的盒马鲜生半自动超市,在盒马,客户通过手机APP来进行商品选购,然后通过天花板上的传送带将商品送到收银台或者直接寄到家。
