Food Service Robots Are Coming

Would you want a robot serving you at a restaurant? We’ve already seen robots flip burgers in the kitchen and serve you coffee — but soon robots won’t be relegated to manual repetitive tasks. As robotics advances, robots will be able to take on more complex, nuanced tasks and move from the back of the house to the front.

On this week’s podcast, we’ve assembled a stellar panel to talk about our robot-filled future. Science and tech writer (and robot expert), Signe Brewster joins the show along with The Spoon Founder and Chief, Mike Wolf.

Together, we discuss not just restaurant robots, but the increasing presence of robots throughout the food chain, the difference between a robot and plain old automation, and whether Mike himself is in fact, a robot.
