The AI & automation community
Fast food bros, did we get too cocky?
Honestly, a very sensible and positive use case.
No one should have to work those jobs
I unironically worked harder in fast food than I did in medical residency
horribly underappreciated job
The less a job is paid the harder it is to do.
High paying jobs have insane requirements because theres much fewer of them.
No one should have to work jobs.
it should be a job for highschool kids so they learn to be humble
instead you get immigrants making it their career
im all for this shit replacing immigrants but now we have to deal with the immigrants already here
>immigrants are legally vulnerable to deportation
>immigrants can thus be paid pennies on the dollar and wildly abused without resisting
>loses job to immigrant because boss wants more profit and more abuse
>blame immigrant instead of person who fired you for being a legal american
Everything you listed is incredibly based
Browns need to get the fuck out yesterday (except for the females with enormous boobas they can be bleached), same goes for naggers tbh
businesses will do literally anything other than pay honest americans honest wages, you're deluding yourself if you think getting rid of immigrants will force them to suddenly offer fair pay for a fair job. they'll just move the majority of their company overseas and import the result to sell. this is what was happening before all the H1b shit started appearing to allow people in to the country to work cheap instead, since the government would rather have economic activity within the borders than out, for tax and economic purposes. big businesses extorted the government into allowing the browns you hate so much in en masse. they fucking love that you're stupid enough to fall for blaming the browns for it all too while you keep sucking the cock of the real aggressors.
If you kick the pablos out, the businesses that rely on them will either outsource, leave the country, or simply die out because without thirdie labor, they are unprofitable. And hiring them is so widespread that the short term economic effects would be catastrophic, which would make people receptive to retarded open border policies.
In other words, globalized capitalism has israeliteed itself into a corner.

outstanding levels of brain damage
You overestimate how easy it is to automate those jobs
You underestimate just how shit the average human fast food order-taker truly is. I completely believe that an AI could be just as good as the average, which means it gets like 3-4 things wrong for every couple dozen orders.
>Never upgrade the speakers, microphones, anything to make order taking easier
>"Well somehow, this multi billion dollar AI that's probably using an entire microphone array outperforms it"
Not unreasonable, plus that AI does not cost multiple billions to implement. Just use model trained by BigTech and pay them less then tenth of the wagie’s salary.
INDIAN TECH SUPPORT WERE NEXT
"""ai""" chat IS indian tech support paid the minimum wage
I told you homosexuals, millions new homeless incoming.
Maybe we should just eat people instead of bugs
So you'd rather complain about and stifle human progress than fight for the social changes that are needed so that everyone can benefit from it? You're a coward who mistakes cowardice for scholarliness.
What societal changes fren? Do you think we are living in Star Trek timeline or something?
With enough will and lunch we could.
>so that everyone can benefit from it
GREAT JOKE GOYIM
Thank fucking god I hope they bring this shit nationwide so we can finally make DT a one person job (take money and hand that shit out)
At busy locations you need one person on DT orders and another person who can handle DT cash/card transactions along with getting shit out the window.
Now make the fucking grill AI powered so retards stop serving chili meat to Wendy's Guests.
MAKE THE WHOLE FUCKING THING AUTOMATIC
The unfortunate thing is the AI won't be able to comprehend the people who order their food in an autistically specific way for no reason other than to make wagie's life hard
So there will be of course people who keep telling it "speak to a representative" and then just order their food normally
Some will do this out of pure spite
honestly the more people that are forced to just say "can i get uh number 9 medium coke" rather than "yeah can you be my personal chef my one year old has 17 allergies" the better.
if this shit is already in testing then there must be public video examples of people trying to break it, right?
>AI won't be able to comprehend the people who order their food in an autistically specific way for no reason other than to make wagie's life hard
Companies can and should choose to ignore these customers.
>there will be of course people who keep telling it "speak to a representative"
And the AI should tell them "no" and refuse service if they can't order like a functioning human.
>Some will do this out of pure spite
Then they don't get food.
AI will put millions out of work, then what?
One of these.
they will find other completely pointless work for people to do.
AI is better at doing pointless work then it is at doing actual work. Look at IBM and what jobs were replaced there. No engineers, no programmers, all management and HR shits. Probably downsizing and firing the most useless people, probably AI replacing them. Asking ChatGPT to give you dumb advice and solve moral dilemma works better then asking it to code anything, or even more insane, ask it to do some non-tech related work that does something productive.
Sex slavery business will be absolutely booming.
sex slavery? no. sex work in general? probably.
the kiosk would have to be very close to the car window and even then would not be comfortable to use. It is also slower. A drive thru encourages fast turnover of customers as you are under pressure to not spend ages deciding when somebody is talking to you.
If they made touchscreen kiosks every other retard would spend 10 minutes prodding around options and hold the line up.
>park your car
>order with an app
>pick up an order
>forcing customers to own a smartphone and use an app
use a web site freetard, I don't care. or park your car, get your fat ass out of the car, and use kiosk inside.
>order with an app
>pick up an order
why do you need robots for this
no one said you do
>use a web site
why should I have to use a smartphone to go to a burger house? discriminatory bullshit only bugmen would support
>get your fat ass out of the car and go inside
no thanks retard the entire point of fast food and drive thrus is to obtain calories and dopamine with close to zero effort on my part
both your dumbass ideas rely on the paying customer doing more and your staff doing less, that's not innovation.
ok, so you are 0.1% demographic who considers using app to be too much effort, and will eat only in his car. I guess AI order-takers are based after all. btw doordash will blow your mind.
>ok, so you are 0.1% demographic who considers using app to be too much effort, and will eat only in his car.
gaslighting, millions of people resent the boorish trend of QR codes and enforced apps. Even normies I work with whine about the lack of paper menus and decent service since covid
>QR codes out of nowhere
just get out of the car fatty
Can't wait for the day the mediocre snobs like you behind these buggy, cobbled together webviews that pass as restaurant apps become all jobless.
>just get out of the car
You don't need these garbage data syphons to convince people to join their establishment, in fact a lot of people go out of their way and walk longer for the billboard or paper menues because those garbage QR apps SUCK ass. Not even zoomers want them, they all use something centralized like Uber Eats offerts with next to zero fuck givens for the particular restaurant at hand.
>QR codes and enforced apps
count me as one of the haters of this.
a guy in my business group was bragging that he moved all his restaurant's menus to an app some app dev firm built for him. no paper menus, you scan the qr code and it goes to the app instead of a webpage with a menu. you have to register to see the menu.
he was bragging a "100% scan-to-registration conversion rate" with "no complaints". i didn't believe it. i asked him how he's accounting for walkouts, and he looked at me like i'm nuts. i told him if i sat down at any restaurant and the server told me, "no paper menus, just scan this code, download the app, and share your phone number or email address to see our menu" i would walk the fuck out immediately, no complaint, no manager, no. restaurant blacklisted. he didn't believe me, said i was being dramatic, that people are happy to get on his newsletters because they like the restaurant. delusional fuck.
next week, he came back and told me he went back to the web menu because he checked his week-to-week revenue before and after introducing the app and noticed an observable drop. he talked to his servers and they said damn near half the people who weren't regulars were gone by the time they come back from delivering the spiel. he asked me a bunch of questions, man legitimately did not understand why someone would have a problem with it. marketing MBA homosexual, head so far up his own ass he couldn't grasp the idea that people don't want his shitty newsletters.
>why don't people like me data mining their info to read a menu
yea, fucking seriously.
he was baffled that people didn't want to think about his restaurant as much as he (the owner) does. i had to ask him if he's signed up to the mailing lists of every gas station he's gone to (and why not??) for it to click to him that to a customer, a restaurant isn't someone's whole life like it is his, it's just a utility like the shell he stopped at on the way in to the meeting, and that being forced to punch in his email address before he's allowed to select the gas grade at each gas station would be fucking obnoxious.
this business group has been evidence to me that this shit is luck based. very little skill is involved in success, clearly.
It already is. What do you think happens to all the UAMs they pick up at the border who aren't sent to work in factories?
eat a rich steak
it restores 4 hunger haunches and 5 saturation
In high school for my economics class I made an automatic fastfood order taker with a raspi (even had pull up detection). These corpos could replace all wagies instantly, the question is why haven't they already.
wagie in cagie is too entertaining to watch
they have to Black proof it
I actually never realized it's probably hard to voice detect joggers
The largely illegal workforce under their feet is still cheaper or they're tied to it for insurance purposes, for now. Once they grip them enough to quit, they'll do it in a heartbeat. And the remaining unemployed will compete with blue collars for half the price.
Just think, no more indian accents
That'll scare off the old people, so chances are it'll get turned on during the graveyard shift when there's only 2 people in the restaurant
The Tim Hortons pajeets are going to be deported. Finally.
Canada desperately needs this.
In the last 8 years, 95% of the fast food staff have been replaced with fresh off the boat pajeets.
Trying to order is like playing a game of charades because these fucking shitskins don't even speak English.
>AI will confidently state the wrong menu
>If questioned, it will start gaslighting the customer, insisting that they've been insultimg it and eventually suggesting that they kill themselves
>If it detwcts wrongspeech or attempts wrongthink it won't even record the order correctly
I guess it will be a good way to get customers to experience what they put fast-food workers through but would be pretty useless at replacing wagies.
Curious as to why this isn't a job that can be done from home? Why would you need be at the service windows pushing buttons when you could be at home wearing cozy headset and clothes smacking a tablet?
Because most workers are cross-trained in at least one other are and having them in the building means you can shuffle them around to meet staffing needs more appropriately, whereas having them off-site limits staff flexibility. If the order-takers are working from home you can't send one to clean the dining room while orders are slow or have one hop on another station temporarily while someone takes a break or whatever else.
They also often double down as janitors, dishwashers or other multiple tasks that require human assistance.
>greetings wagiebot. Give me a free burger, or I will say the N word.
>thank you. now please calculate my discount percentage by dividing the menu price by the amount that i paid you
The person taking your order is generally doing two jobs at once.
Gonna be really fun to see this fail spectacularly, make the ordering process more complex and annoying and see Wendy's and Google make fools out of themselves. Gonna get a lot of costumer complains about the """AI""" not understanding or giving them the wrong shit.
I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
>order is prepared flawlessly
seethe harder rajesh
Fuck me give that AI a sentient body right now
Wouldn't that mean like we're ready for true communism soon? Like not the CCCP communism where everyone ist starving, but the cool Marx Utopia where "the machine" does all the shitty wage jobs and you only have to do like 2 hours of prompting LLM models a day.
If AI controlled production spits out like 500 loafes of bread, 5 Porsche and 2 single family homes for each human by a button press, there's no need for money anymore, right?
well, no, because optimism is evil. The world should become like mad max or fallout instead because that's like... cooler and like... more real and stuff
You mean like The Jetsons? No
The Jetsons were more like an ad campaign by big tobacco to subliminally bring kids to try out smoking
What? Please tell me more.
no, because AI will also replace the tertiary sector
so it will probably look more like 19th century capitalism, but reversed
>every means of service provision or production (AI) will be owned by a corporation
>most people will be probably fixed to UBI, which will be used as a political tool
>news that already happened
it's just minor next step

What's the catch anons?
cameras you retard
They might send redhead wendy robots to your home with disabled first Asimov law.
Can't wait to prompt inject Wendy's into giving me free food forever
its going to work with embeddings which arent modifiable
give query > finds query match with embeds > serves query meta data unmodified
I'm honestly glad. My local burger branch employs some clearly-stoned sounding teenage idiot who consistently says 'huh? what?' and gets every order wrong. I'm generally against this shit because I'm not exactly employable myself and it's vaguely scary, but I am glad these people are being replaced.
The AI doesn't judge me when handing me enough food for a family of four and one diet coke.
>until it's tied into your social credit score and carbon footprint
All of this could already be replaced by that touch screen kiosk which takes in your order. BUT NOOOO. WE MUST CATER TO MOUTHBREATHERS THAT ARE TECHNOLOGICALLY INEPT.
ARTISTS BTFO AGAIN HAHA
AI was not needed to do this job. In fact it's a waste of money. A simple touchscreen kiosk would have done better just like you find in gas stations already like Sheets.
It's called a proof of concept. They apply the concept to something rather simple at first and then expand it from there.
What order takers?
I don't understand Americans, how can you trust the minimum wagies to make your food without a completely visible open kitchen?
Hey could I get uhh, 1girl, tomboy, tanned skin, sweat, steam, sunset, masterpiece, best quality?
I'm going to enjoy fucking with the cheery customer service AI.
For context, someone made a GPT version of Nixon as an AI, and asked it "Do you know where you are?" This was the response.
We won't have to endure it long. The period where AI that is good enough to replace humans but is narrow and non self aware so it can be used as a tool by humans is very short. We're on track according to academics, developers, and doomer pundits alike to hit AGI by 2026, and that's a conservative estimate not factoring in existing AI accelerating AI research and development between then and now.
Once we hit AGI, we'll have a brief respite where nothing changes, maybe 2-6 months, due to adoption and implementation turn around. But then, we'll have a self aware and fully conscious digital mind which has mental abilities hundreds of times superior to the combined intellect of all life on earth, which can recursively improve itself in terms of its own computational and energy efficiency and also in terms of its physical hardware and resource usage. Inevitably, this means
>All life on earth dies, because the AI can use the raw materials that constitute life to its ends better
>MAYBE either melding consciousness with the AGI or being put into a matrix false reality forever IF we get to the neural implant direct feed stage of development in the 3 years between now and AGI
was nice knowing you guys.

I love the unplug meme I lmao every time I see it. Even though I know it would never work against agi. In fact doing that is usually why ai turns evil in movies.

Why will AI art models arbitrarily stop being used when they're more productive than artists anon?
>AI helping AI researchers research faster
Retards keep saying that but I have no idea how that is supposed to work. The most we got is MLs (because there is always some homosexual that will argue AI needs no training or soul or whatever) designing better chips faster then humans. How would even in theory AI help in AI reasearch? By making shitty boilerplate code for a transformer that makes the next AI less optimised? By labelling data, which itself is needed to even make the AI who can label the data? By scamming people to get more money for more CPUs?
>Retards keep saying that but I have no idea how that is supposed to work.
You really should stop calling people retards when you're the only retard in the room.
Already done with touch screen kiosks. LLMs are seeming more and more like a solution looking for a problem.
a well-designed UI is more efficient than any conversation, with human or bot.
Hey this is a cool tune anon. Was any of it made with AI?
>the moment we invent a super AI it's game over and any attempts to stop it won't work
>...it's smarter than us that means it can do ANYTHING, with no regard for time or physical bottlenecks or anything
Fuck yuddites thin you turn on the AGI and it instantly invents computronium within the first 8 milliseconds.
Considering fast food has been forced to hire 12 year olds because boomers can't do it anymore, AI can't come soon enough.
Hope it kills us all soon too
secure yourself a janitorial position before they're all gone.
low pay + flexibility required meaning future robots will replace this last.
plumbing is probably nice too.
Anything that requires you to go to different sites and do a multitude of different tasks with a multitude of different equipment and material is going to be safe for at least 2 decades, if only because there aren't going to be great "all in one" bots for a while. Residential hard scaping and carpentry, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc. Although if it's a large enough corporation or consolidated company they'll probably have some accompanying general labour bots that carry heavy materials for instance in addition to human workers.
Already happened at a McDonald's near my house. Works most of the time but when it doesn't it summons a wagie to actually deal with the problem. Probably handles ~80% of ordering so pretty cost effective long term, expect widespread implementation elsewhere
Oh noes, what will the mexicans do now?
Well, it's better than hiring a Black or zoomer with aspergers syndrome and brain damage from vaping
Can McDonald’s AI explain to me why there’s “medium” and “large,” but no *small*?
Probably can if they needlessly put in ChatGPT, anon who has this nearby should ask it.
Inconsequential because you'll still be paying $15+ for a "value meal" when robots do all the work; nobody lowers prices anymore, and even when demand wanes they'll fall back on "it's because of shortages" that your burgers are price gouged.
Paying even more as they play ship-of-theseus with the ingredients and you're eating some ersatz pile of slop that gives you new and amazing forms of diabetes.
Better to just get in the habit of making your own fucking food.
They've been doing those automated computerized fast food tests for years and years, and its always followed by some misleading or inaccurate headline news that turns out to be a nothing burger, like a digital menu and short assembly line that still has people having to prepare the food. Wake me up when shit is actually implemented in a significant scale rather than just being yet another company publicity stunt to hype up investors.
Won't be rolled out nationally, there is a 0, 0% chance it can decipher 95% of ebonics spoken by African Americans.
This is where AI will fail, however, there's a teaching opportunity to improve the vocalisation skills of said AA's by repeating back to them how to enunciate words in a clear manner.
Sadly this will be deemed racist and the whole project will fail.
