Posted December 04, 2019 09:33:03We’ve already seen a number of companies come up with solutions for human resource problems, but what if the problem wasn’t hiring?
That’s the question Google and Uber are trying to answer by creating an autonomous driving service.
While Google’s driverless cars are still largely a demonstration of technology, there’s been an increase in demand for self-driving cars in recent years.
Uber has also created an autonomous bus service called UberEats, and the company is now testing autonomous taxis in San Francisco.
While Uber has also started experimenting with self-serve robots, it’s unclear whether the company will go that route.
A company called Zoox is also testing self-service robots in New York City, and it recently released a robot designed to read the mood of customers in order to find their way home.
Google has also been working on a robot called Bouncer, which has a wide range of capabilities, including a speech recognition algorithm that can understand people’s body language and even provide recommendations.
The robot can be controlled remotely with a smartphone app, and Google hopes to release Bouncher as a service in the coming months.
It’s unclear if Google’s self-driverless car service will eventually come to market, but Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said that it’s in development and that the company wants to make the service available to consumers as soon as possible.
