Robot works in a shop – level 1

23-04-2015 07:00

This news is about a robot. It looks like a woman. She works in a shopping centre in Japan. She greets the customers.

The robot speaks Japanese. She can also speak Chinese and Korean.

The robot cannot answer questions. It cannot handle complaints. Humans are still better.

Difficult words: greet (say “hello”), customer (somebody who comes to a shop), complaint (when you complain – say that you do not like something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Will robots replace humans?
