Paradise Hotel Busan has announced it is trialing an ‘AI Serving Robot’ to expand its non-face to face services to its food and beverage establishments.
The robot is developed by KT AI Robot Business Group, and is equipped with 3D spatial mapping technology and autonomous driving.
The robot will be trialed during operating hours at the ‘Nix Grill’ for a period of three months.
The new robot follows a stream of automated and “touchless” technology rolling out in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It follows a self check in kiosk system which was introduced by the operator in October last year.
The world is bouncing back, or at least coming to grips with the fact that going forward not much will be the same as before. Commendably, this industry quickly understood the need to adapt to a new normal, and that the days of targeting the low hanging fruit of the VIP sector are gone.
Over the years, many of the answers have been remarkably prescient in their forecasts for the near-term direction of Asia’s gaming industry. However, we can safely say that no one came anywhere close to guessing what 2020 may have had in store.
