In the cold, chalky cellars deep underground at boutique Champagne house A.R. Lenoble, co-owner Antoine Malassagne shares his worries about the future of the region’s world-famous fizz.

The pot heats the food using magnetic induction, then tips to dunk the cooked meal into a bowl. Water jets up to rinse it off before a new order begins. Is this a robot chef or just another high-tech novelty machine? Experts differ, but more of such automation is likely headed for the fast-food sector … [Read more...] about Are robot chefs a fad, or will they transform the fast-food industry?
