Temple under the watchful ‘AI’ of robot

A TEMPLE in Seremban is using a smart robot to remind visitors to adhere to standard operating procedure at all times, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The century-old Then Sze Koon Temple, located along Jalan Bukit Temiang 1, claims to be the first temple in the country to use an artificial intelligence (AI) robot at its premises.

The robot has five basic functions, including welcoming guests and reminding them to comply with the safety measures. It can also be remotely controlled using mobile phone applications. It plays Buddhist scriptures and introduces visitors to the history of the temple.

A temple spokesperson said the robot might be used to read fortune sticks in the future.
