First Robot-Run Hotel Opens in Japan to Save Money on Paying Human Staff

By Melissa Dykes

In the coming “smart” future run by artificial intelligence, it has been predicted that robots will begin taking over most of the low- to medium-wage jobs first. Why? Because tech is increasingly cheap and doesn’t require any benefits or lunch breaks.

For example, eight out of the ten jobs that employ the most people in the U.S. and account for about 20% of our current workforce stand a greater than 90% (and in some cases a 98%) estimated chance of being replaced by a robot.

In other words, once the smart grid robo-future is fully instituted, millions across America and the world will likely lose their jobs to robots.

Now the first hotel run almost exclusively by robots has opened up in Japan… specifically to offset labor costs.

Via RT:

While a dino receptionist does the check-in and check-out for English-speaking visitors, a female android resembling a remote ancestor of the robotic servant from the “Humans” TV-series welcomes guests in Japanese. They are accompanied by an automated trolley that takes guests’ luggage to their room. A transparent locker system, called a “robot cloak room,” features a giant industrial-looking robotic arm.

During check-in, visitors still have to type in information on a touch panel screen. They will also have to get used to facial recognition technology replacing standard electronic keys.

The virtual concierge, a doll-like robot with voice recognition, is responsible for reminding guests of breakfast time and scheduled events. Moreover, there is a lamp-sized robot in every room, nicknamed Tuly for its fat, pink tulip shape, which can provide information on time and weather, turn the lights on and off, and even give guests a wake-up call.

Hideo Sawada, owner of the Henn na Hotel specifically said he made this move not because it’s a cool gimmick but in order to save on labor costs and create “the most efficient hotel in the world”.

Welcome to the trendy new future.

  1. I wonder how often robots use hotels. I mean since they have the jobs and all.

      The top robot execs insist on hotels run by, and serviced by, humans. It’s a kind of inverted snobbery thing, really.

      • I think the whole thing is absurd. It will be like trying to get help from a recorded message. People will hate it. And not only that, they will be robbing these hotels blind as how easy will it be to fool a robot. What a joke.

  2. Help the human owners of it go out of business by no human customers..After all you are both slavery by no real ownership to the no guaranteed blood money god..freedom and all life first before all else,what a great living and learning opportunity of real truth and reality by real understanding..

  3. Given sufficient exposure to a radioactive environment, poisoned by the fukushima nuclear power plant, the robots may end up being the only labor force available.
    As to the customers…?

  4. SOOOO do the robots clean up the rooms after guests too?

    Can’t wait for the first robot hack….. should be hilarious…….

  6. I won’t be doing business with anyone who almost exclusively uses robots as it will only hurt humanity. I only check out at the grocery store with a human at the cash register.
