VIDEO – USA: my server is a robot

This Washington D.C. restaurant can be a bit inhumane, but traditional courtesies are still guaranteed. “Enjoy your meal“, two customers can be heard saying who finds “very funny“to be served by a robot in this way. Currently in the United States, two-thirds of restaurants say they lack manpower, especially after the pandemic. So here, the boss decided to hire Rosie, a robot waiter who avoids all obstacles thanks to his sensors .Rent of 700 euros per month, according to him, everything is profitable: “Rosie, I only pay her once, I don’t pay taxes for her, and she will never get Covid.“, – he welcomes. And from the side of the staff, the new colleague is received quite well.”She’s not here to take my job, she’s just extra help.“, – says the employee of the institution.

A young company that has been marketing this robot since 2019 is currently a hit. And she’s far from the only one in her niche. In catering, tourism and hotels, these so-called “service” robots represent a huge market that could reach over 300 million euros by 2026.

You’ll be spoiled for choice between a robot that does dishes, one that makes cocktails, others that make coffee, hamburgers, pizza, or even a room service version of the machine. Robotics is about to revolutionize the service industry. Because by 2019, 600,000 hospitality and food service jobs should be filled in the US. A shift job, not always well paid, that no longer appeals after Covid. Therefore, the invasion of robots can start with restaurants.
