Chipotle has reportedly begun testing the use of an AI-driven robot named Chippy which is tasked with creating the company’s tortilla chips in place of human employees.
Forbes reports that Chipotle has announced a test with Miso Robotics to utilize an AI-driven robot named Chippy to produce its tortilla chips. Chippy will be tested at the Chipotle Cultivate Center in Irvine, California, for the duration of the trial.
