NAO Robot Explains the Menu at Bowls of Steel
Southern New Hampshire University
I worked in Bowls of Steel for two years, where my favorite part of my job was getting to interact with the customers by explaining the menu. However, it was very hard to hire more staff, and when I left Malaysia the restaurant had to shut down. Hopefully, the novelty of having robot staff as well as having them explain the menu might allow the restaurant to stay open. NAO has been programed to walk customers through the menu, as it can listen for key words that will be provided to the customers, and then reply.
