The EA bot was launched in April 2017 as a customer assistant device. It roams around on its own being deployed along the central atrium by the authorities on different floors of the mall complex. The robot works on Artificial Intelligence and thus can process the image of the visitors as well as of the shops. The bot approaches the customers and greets them with its recorded mechanical voice. On its screen, you can find the shops you are looking for as well as the latest deals, sales or offer any of the outlets might have. EA assistant will guide you to the shop of your choice all by its own. They are autonomous and will remind you a bit of the bot from Star Wars.
