We humans have one more reason to feel happy and elated. The news is that 10 robots employed as chefs and waiters in restaurants in China have been fired after their owners found them not smart enough. Obviously this means more work opportunities for humans.
Employing artificial intelligent robots in restaurants has not proved such a smart idea after all. A number of restaurant owners have chosen to fire about 10 robots because they were just not clever or sophisticated enough to do their jobs properly, Xiamen Daily reported.
The plug has been pulled on a number of the robots employed as chefs and waiters only a few years after a catering business in the seaport city of Xiamen, in southern Fujian province, employed them instead of people, Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post quoted the daily as saying. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
The robots were found to be not intelligent at all. While the robot waiters were an excellent gimmick to woo customers, they were not quite so good at their programmed task of serving food and drink to customers. They were merely standing there to look fancy.
Another robot-themed restaurant closed down less than six vlog months after its opening. Past diners had complained that dishes prepared by the robot chefs were “unpalatable”.
For a restaurant to employ a robot worker it must pay about 50,000 yuan (over US $7,700) for each robot and then several hundred yuan each month for its upkeep, including repairs, plus electricity. So far the low-cost robot automated waiters and cooks had proved they were not up to the job of working as restaurant waiters and chefs as they were not sufficiently intelligent enough to carry out their assigned tasks competently.
Zhang Yun, a specialist at Guangdong University of Technology, says that while robots are good at repetitive tasks in manufacturing, they are still unable to perform autonomously in jobs such as waiting which require interaction with unpredictable humans.
