Even if you want to sing karaoke, exercise, or swim in the middle of the night,
you can go to the hotel gym without reservation.
Just scan your face and enter. It’s that simple.
Wow, that does sound amazing...
Although we now know more about this kind of unoccupied hotel like Alibaba Future Hotel, the technology used is so advanced that it took a long time before its popularity could grow across the entire country.
Undoubtedly, however, such sophisticated hotels or unmanned supermarkets like the one that launched last year will be a common sight in 10 years’ time!
No paid personnel, low expenditure; The biggest killer in the future!
In 2017, Jack Ma announced to the World Internet of Things Exposition (WIoT) that mankind was about to face a big impact!
People in the future will only have to work three days a week, four hours a day.
Those most coolies, the simplest work, all will be replaced by artificial intelligence robots.
The simplest jobs -- cleaners, waiters, cashiers and takeout workers -- are set to get hit the hardest in the next decade.
