Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: ROBOT BARTENDER

, , Leave a comment

What do you get when you mate a bartender with a robot? Cecilia – a workhorse at Florida International University, who can mix 120 drinks per hour 24/7, and can even tell jokes at the same time – bad as they might be. In all seriousness, we are continuing to see the expansion of robotics, step by step, in areas of low-hanging fruit where technology can solve workforce-related issues. In the coming years, expect to experience humanized “Cecilias” serving as a backup to live bartenders at a busy bar, or as a sole attendant in a hotel lobby bar in off-hours, along with countless other applications.
