Ever thought your local pizza delivery guy was more bot than boy? Well thanks to Dominos, you will soon. From March 2017, it’s launching an artificially intelligent assistant in Australia so pizza lovers can order on the go using the Dominos app, or while chatting to their mates on Facebook’s messenger app.
The service – built in collaboration with US IA firm Nuance – can handle multiple pizza combinations, as well as special requests like ‘hold the anchovies’.
This latest development is all part of the pizza brand’s bigger initiative to shift from a fast food chain to an ‘internet of food’ tech company. They’ve also launched an ‘anywhere delivery’ service where customers can order their favourite slice to wherever they are using their phone’s GPS. So whether you’re hitting the park or the beach, Dominos has it covered.
Now that’s a service we can get on board with. Pizza anyone?
