AI-powered caffeine addiction ☕️ 🫘

Two weeks ago, Naver unveiled its autonomous, in-house Starbucks. The South Korean tech company uses 100 robots to deliver coffee to its employees.

Un-frap-ping believable. ☕️🤭

What robots?

They’re autonomous robots called Rookie bots. They wheel around and deliver packages, coffee, lunch, and more to Naver’s employees.

How does it work?

The bots connect to Naver’s ARC system (AI, Robot, and Cloud). It connects and controls the robots’ interactions and movements.

Any other robots? Besides the trash can on wheels?

A two-armed robot called Ambidex washes dishes, peel potatoes, and more. It’s lightweight, which makes it safe to operate around humans.

Cool beans. ☕️🫘

Tired of broken Amazon packages? 📦 🔥

On Monday, Amazon unveiled Project P.I. It’s an AI system that detects damage or errors on products before they ship out to customers.

How does it work?

Products pass through a tunnel, where Project P.I. scans for damage. If found, the item is isolated. It then checks for defects in similar items to find the cause of the problem.

What happens to the damaged items?

Employees evaluate the flagged products to determine if they can be sold via Amazon’s Second Change resell site, donated, and more.

Is Project PI in effect now?

Amazon claims it’s live in many North American warehouses and plans to add it to more later this year.

I’m damaged goods, PI. Did you detect me? 🫣
