Robolab Launches ICO to Fund Project Yanu, an AI-powered Robot to Replace Bartenders

Dubbed Yanu, this “bartender” robot comes with snake-like flexible arms that can grip glasses, pour drinks and take payments. Basically, Yanu is designed to do everything it does far more efficiently as compared to the average human bartender. Robolab touts Yanu as the world’s first fully autonomous and portable bartending unit that deploys sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) technology to precisely and efficiently serves drinks.

As to why Robolab believes that AI-powered robot bartenders can be better alternatives to their human counterparts, the company’s CEO, Alan Adojaan, explains: Without delving into the technical nitty gritty, Yanu hosts a disembodied cybernetic arm inside its body (a kiosk, basically). Comparing that with the ability of an average human bartender, each unit of Yanu is capable of replacing up to four bartenders made of blood and flesh. Starting this August, Robolab is launching an initial coin offering (ICO) with the hope that the venture will help the company raise enough funds to unveil a full prototype of Yanu by the end of the year.

So the million-dollar question here is, can robots actually replace human bartenders solely based on their ability to serve drinks faster and efficiently? While it is obvious that a robot CANNOT replicate some of the intricate parts of the human bartender experience (at least not yet), Yanu may prove itself very helpful in popular pubs, clubs and lounges with high turnouts. Robolabs has reportedly already entered into agreements with five airports in Europe and two beverage companies whose flagship cocktails will be among Yanu’s specialty following its launch.
