Honest Café automated shops tap into cloud-powered cognitive computing


IBM has worked with Revive Vending to create systems for unmanned coffee shops that tap into the cognitive computing technology of Watson Analytics for data analysis.

Three unmanned Honest Café coffee shops are in operation in London, and another four are in the pipeline. The outlets offer a range of healthy and organic foods and juices alongside fair trade coffee, all through vending machines.

The lack of staff is a move by Revive Vending to reduce overheads and drive efficiency in café environments.
