Robot Replaces Bartenders in Japanese Bar

Some days ago a robot appeared behind the bar at the Ikebukuro Station in Tokyo, ready to serve clients drinks such as beer and cocktails.

The robot captures the customer's facial expressions, talks and waves their hands, prviding a fun experience. An attached tablet computer face smiles as it chats about the weather while preparing orders.

The robot, made by the company QBIT Robotics, can pour a beer in 40 seconds and mix a cocktail in a minute. It uses four cameras to monitors customers to analyze their expressions with artificial intelligence (AI) software. AI helps the robot learn the appropriate service patterns based on the expression and reaction of the customers, with its skills to improve over time.





The robot bartender trial at the pub, which employs about 30 people, will last two months after which the bar company will assess the results.

However, the robot is not cheap to buy. At about 9 million yen ($82,000), it costs as much as employing a human bartender for three years.

Japan wants to use the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games beginning on July 27 to showcase service robot technology, with organizers planning to use robots built by Toyota Motor and Panasonic Corp to help visitors, workers and athletes.

Too bad it doesn't suck your dick.
Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.

I don't like this. Who else would listen to all my life's problems? Bartenders are basically cheaper therapists. Robots can't do that shit.

i never been to a bar before so i wouldn't know.  my middle brother takes me to starbucks and the bartenders there are almost always busy making drinks that they don't have time to listen to our conversations.

kind of surprise you can communicate to a bartender about your life's problems.  i am assuming this is beer bartender.  maybe beer bartenders aren't that busy like coffee bartenders are.

Depends on the bar you go to. A hip and happening bar people go to party, not really. But your local dive bar yes. Local bars tend to have the same people come in and they generally aren't as busy as the party bars that are down the street from me. The dive bar I used to go to I became very friendly with the bartenders. One was actually my real estate agent when I was looking for homes. Dive bars tend to be little local social clubs where all the drunks congregate and bull shit with each other. And the one I went to who you were didn't matter. We were all friends there and all talked to each other. Race, age, gender, it didn't matter. We were a community. Shame that place closed :(

Oh and paul, coffee shop "bartenders" are called baristas. Calling them bartenders isn't particularly accurate. Bartenders serve alcohol :)

*me gets embarrassed*.  didn't know coffee shop servers are called baristas.  now i do.  i think i see the word baristas on one of the walls of one of starbuck coffee shops that my middle brother takes me to.  can't be 100% sure but i am like 80% sure of it that i seen it on the wall or something like and i didn't know what it means until now.  cool. :)
