Burger-Flipping Robot Taking Over
In 50 Fast Food Restaurants

CBS Sacramento, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:xcenturion, 9/13/2017 3:17:37 PM

As fast food employees across the U.S. continue to protest for higher wages, a California chain restaurant has decided to hire a new staff member that works for free. The competition for the company’s low-wage workers: a burger-flipping robot named “Flippy.” CaliBurger has announced they will be installing the high-tech replacement in 50 of their locations around the world. “Flippy,” the robotic kitchen assistant, was created by a California startup company called Miso Robotics and is expected to roll out in 2018.

This is what progressivism will get you. A place in the unemployment line, and less summer jobs for students. Well done California!

I can´t wait till the minimum wage is so high that the various DMVs around the nation start using robots intead of morons to staff their offices. Doesn´t the goobernment realize that sooner rather than later, they will make cush goobernment jobs unaffordable?

Beats bringing in more H-2B workers or hiring illegals.

If legal Americans are no-longer cost-effective, then we need to think seriously about apprenticeships and training young workers for jobs not suited to automation. Find a way to make good use of our legal youth and turning them into productive workers. Win, win.

$3,000,000/pop doesn´t exactly sound like "working for free".

Even replacing 3 $36,000/year employees, how long will it take to break even?

I can´t speak for other states, but in ND I have been able to renew vehicle registration online for several years. Takes only a couple of minutes and the new tags arrive in the mail a few days later. Now I understand that routine renewals of drivers licenses will mostly be done online. Have not stood in line at the DMV in several years.

Food preparation, at least for fast food, is an ideal candidate for robots. Think of pizza. Each ingredient precisely measured and placed with exact precision. And do risk of some nasty person spitting in your food. Staffing a fast food place could come down to technical managers to make sure the machines are running properly.

Hah hah! You jackasses keep wanting these ignorant, mastermind hacks in higher office
that are clueless to economics (see Shuma, Piggilossi, Fauxkahantas etc.) now this is the result....low paying jobs that usually was the gateway to bigger and better things...buh-bye!

Only recently has low cost robotics incorporating human like dexterity and visual recognition with AI been possible. Tens of millions of lower wage jobs are going to disappear faster than anyone realizes. It’s only a matter of time before a small business can order plug and play robotic workers in a box configurable to specific functions and industries. They are going to be expensive, but that $15/hr employee may be actually costing $30/hr after factoring in low productivity, turnover, worker disruption, tardiness, no shows, theft, law suits, holiday pay, work rules, social security and health insurance. If robotic automation takes the place of two workers on two shifts every day, that’s a $350,000/yr

Think about how many agricultural workers were displaced just by the first wave of automation with tractors and harvesters. This same sort of revolution is coming in the low wage labor intensive industries particularly fast food service, food processing plants and migrant farm work. The unskilled or semi-skilled illegal immigrant work force will be decimated.

An absolutely guaranteed result of the push for $15/hour minimum wage. Perfectly predictable and predicted by anyone with an actual grasp of basic economics. Of course, no leftist or most of the folks earning less than $15/hour who were pushing for this is bright enough to grasp it in advance.

Deer in the headlight looks, all around the central planning fools.

When robotics invaded the operating room I gave up my practice as a brain surgeon and undertook a much more secure career as a repair plumber.

Seems overly complex to this engineer. I could design a machine to do it, not nearly as complex and expensive as a robot. Super simple process, shouldn´t be hard to make a machine to do it automatically, not mimicking human motions, just doing what is needed.

A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself

Hillary Clinton Will Not Rule Out ‘Questioning

Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the

Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,

Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,

Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on

President Trump disturbed some in the press after vowing in his United Nations speech to "destroy" North Korea should the country attack the U.S. In his speech, Trump referred to North Korean President Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man" and said he was on a "suicide mission" in advancing the country´s nuclear weapons development. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea," he said. On Twitter, MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said Trump "threatened to commit a war crime" by threatening North Korea.
