In further robot news, Hilton is piloting the use of a robot designed to act as a concierge alongside its existing reception staff.
The robot, known as "Connie", will be tested at the chain's Hilton McLean property in Virginia, US, with orders to "interact with guests and respond to their questions in a friendly and informative manner".
The project is a collaboration between Hilton and the folk at SoftBank Robotics.
But rather than bleep out similar messages day after day, Connie will apparently learn as it (she?) interacts with more guests.
The robot uses machine learning technology provided by IBM Watson, which includes the existing partnership with the Wayblazer system.
Connie will make suggestions and update the information shared based on recommendations it learns from humans.
Rob High, IBM fellow and vice president and chief technology officer of IBM Watson, says:
"Watson helps Connie understand and respond naturally to the needs and interests of Hilton's guests -- which is an experience that's particularly powerful in a hospitality setting, where it can lead to deeper guest engagement."
