If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Pazzi is the world's first autonomous pizza robot. By building an autonomous restaurant, Pazzi Robotics is revolutionizing the fast-food industry. With increasing public health and safety concerns, quest for quality and traceability, and labor constraints, the definition of "Fast Food of the Future" is changing. Additionally, Pazzi is dramatizing robotics to change its approach. The show cooking experience is providing an emotional approach to the dining experience while providing autonomy to the consumers (from ordering to collecting their meal). It has been pioneering fast-food automation since its start in 2013 providing the most advanced tech.
Four years ago in Mountain View, California, a team of robots was cranking out pizzas on a production line that was almost fully automated. The first robot pressed a ball of dough into a flat circle, a second squirted tomato sauce onto it, and a third spread the sauce over the whole crust. Then a human stepped in to add the toppings, but a fourth robot put the pizzas in the oven and a fifth sliced them up when they were done. That operation, called Zume Pizza, has since discontinued its pizza-making operations and shifted its focus to systems for food packaging, production, and delivery. But the idea of robots taking over repetitive food preparation work has only gained traction, especially in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
