Juwai.com is launching Mandarin-speaking robots for property agents and developers in Australia who don't have Mandarin-speaking staff, reports The Australian (23 April 2018). Chinese international real estate portal Juwai.com has partnered with Macau-based artificial intelligence developer Singou to distribute Singou's robot, named Butler 1, to the global real estate industry. The robots, which will be distributed next month, will be sent to property events, showrooms, and offices in Malaysia, Singapore, the US, Australia, and Canada or the UK for the early phase. According to Juwai.com CEO Carrie Law, Singou’s AI chatbot engine would allow Juwai.com to improve and scale the service. “We will use the AI and chatbot to crunch data, handle basic requests, and speed processing,” said Law.
