Taco Bell tries artificial intelligence

Taco Bell will soon introduce “TacoBot,” an online robot that facilitates digital orders for the chain.

Via Slack, a messaging app that’s typically used in offices, customers will be able to place orders for pickup and communicate with TacoBot in real time. “Start asking [TacoBot] questions about our menu, see how it’s feeling or find out what its favorite movie is,” Taco Bell says via its website

TacoBot can also suggest order add-ons, as well as confirm an order and pickup location. 

The chain says TacoBot is currently in beta mode, and is being tested with companies including Giphy, Thought Catalog and FoodBeast before rolling out on a broader scale.

Taco Bell currently offers digital ordering capabilities through its ta.co website and Live Mas app
