Robotic automation in kitchen is picking up steam, and the key driver for this growth is the changing economics of food business.

To meet the demand for delivery, a mix of robotics, artificial intelligence and culinary creativity are blending in together to automate kitchen processes, though not in entirety, to make them faster and more cost-effective, notes The Verge.

Robots essentially cut the clutter by ridding the restaurants of long queues, cash counters and pesky customer interactions, a model that has evolved in response to the way people and society are inclined to interacting with companies.

At the same time, a new report paints a grim picture of the future of home kitchens that are doomed to die as robots and delivery services better suit the tastes of “time-starved and asset-light millennial consumers,” reports Digital Trends.
