Macau-based artificial intelligence and robotics Singou Technology will supply an estimated 5,000 customer service robots to Chinese property portal, reports the Macau News Agency (23 April 2018). “The robots are intended to be used by real estate developers and agents who don’t have team members who speak Mandarin, so that they can assist Chinese buyers who come into their offices,” said Global PR & Communications Director Dave Platter. “Because it looks friendly and can move and approach customers, it will offer a better experience than alternatives. They are not intended to replace agents or salespeople — but to increase the range of buyers that these can serve.”
