AI in Restaurants? The Possibilities are Limitless

January 28, 2022 | Steve Roberts 

Fifty percent of U.S. restaurant operators are planning to implement some form of automation technology in the next two to three years, according to a recent report.

We learned in December that TikTok was teaming up with a ghost-kitchen company to open 300 virtual kitchens. This won’t necessarily push the technologies involved any further, but as far as marketing goes, it’s brilliant, and if it allows users to order meals directly from TikTok, it could be a game-changer, with other social-media platforms following suit. 

Where we’re likely to see the biggest strides in restaurant tech in the years to come, though, is in the development of new applications for artificial intelligence. The global AI market as a whole is expected to grow to a value of $190.61 billion by 2025.
