Robot waiter serves meals in Győr

A robot waiter has started working in Liu’s Cooking restaurant in Győr. Named Emi, the robot serves meals with a smile and helps guests in English, local website Kisalföld reported on Wednesday.

It is not known whether this is a good publicity stunt or a way to remedy the shortage of labour. The latter would not be surprising, especially after all waiters at the Rába Hotel resigned a few days ago, Zoom observes.
