Country Garden Opens Restaurant Operated Completely By Robots


Country Garden, a property developer in China, revealed that its subsidiary Qianxi Robot Catering Group (Qianxi Group) opened a restaurant complex operated completely by robots. Located in Shunde, which is a city in China's Guangdong province, the restaurant eliminates most human-to-human contact and may be a harbinger of how businesses plan to handle the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak. "Country Garden assistant executive officer and Qianxi Group general manager Qiu Mi explained that Qianxi Group has built a complete industry chain encompassing back-end supply production (the centralized kitchens) and robotic cooking alongside the operation of restaurants and the management of robots," Country Garden shared. The restaurant complex is 2,000 square meters or about 21,527 square feet, and it has 20 robots equipped to serve a variety of dishes, including Chinese food, fast food, clay-pot rice and hot pot.

Missing Cannes? Drink Like You're There With Rosé/Not Rosé – IAM Network


Cannes Lions, the glitzy celebration of all things advertising, had been set to take place next week. But when Covid-19 hit in the spring, advertising's biggest event of the year was canceled for 2020. But that hasn't stopped ad-tech firm Cognitiv from celebrating the festival's signature tipple.A tribute to HBO hit series Silicon Valley's Not Hotdog app, Cognitiv created its own Rosé/Not Rosé app to detect whether the drink in a user's hand is indeed rosé. The app, set to be released next week, draws on machine learning to pick out the beverage's light-pink hue--or lack thereof--from a user-submitted selfie.But while the app itself offers a bit of levity, the underlying programming was far from simple, Cognitiv CEO and co-founder Jeremy Fain told Adweek. "It's one thing to train a deep-learning algorithm to identify wine. It's totally another level to develop an algorithm that can accurately discern between rosé, red wine, white wine or water."

Autonomous farm robot Burro assists human workers with grape harvest


It requires identifying specific use cases, as well as which fruit and vegetable growers to work with. When built a robot that uses autonomous driving to ferry produce between workers, it chose to initially focus on table grapes. By contrast, other agricultural AI startups like Ceres Imaging focused on high-value orchard crops like almonds and specialty crops like wine vineyards. Security drone maker Sunflower Labs is being used for automatic deployments on the perimeter of outdoor marijuana-growing operations. Last month, the company began delivering its first commercially available robots to grape growers near Coachella, California.

Google's latest developer tools could make Assistant more capable


Google wants to make the Assistant more powerful, and is announcing today a slew of developer-centric updates that will make it easier to build tools for the digital helper. Three new features in particular are most intriguing: Home Storage, Continuous Match mode and AMP support on smart displays. Google is also releasing a new web-based console and SDK that will make it easier for developers to create for Assistant. These announcements are the largest since the company acquired conversational user experience platform Dialogflow in 2016, according to director of product management Payam Shodjai. With Home Storage, programmers can tap into a pool of information shared by devices in the same household (or, in developer speak, connected on the home graph).

Amazon's Echo Auto comes to the UK, Canada and parts of Europe


Amazon launched Echo Auto in the US back in 2018, designed to bring Alexa voice commands to vehicles where they wouldn't normally be an option. Now, finally, it's arrived in the UK and Canada, as well as Germany, Italy and Spain (it was previously also available in Australia and India). The device uses your phone's cellular connection via a Bluetooth link, letting you talk to Alexa in the usual way -- asking about the weather or to play audiobooks, for example -- as well as carrying out journey-orientated tasks, such as turning on your houselights as you pull into your driveway. Many newer cars already include some kind of voice assistant as standard -- drivers of vehicles without have also had other Alexa-based options to choose from, such as Garmin's Speak series and Anker's Roav Viva. However, a more'official' Amazon Alexa device could be the thing to convince those that haven't yet adopted the technology, even if it's a couple of years in the making.
