Fried chicken fast-food chain KFC's first intelligent robot concept store, "Original+", has been launched at the National Convention and Exhibition Centre here.

Sporting a rectangular head and vase-like shaped body, the robot named "Du Mi" helped people order food and make payments, the People's Daily reported on Wednesday.

The robot was smartly attired in a red waistcoat doubling as overalls.

"Du Mi" marks the first commercial use of artificial intelligence in the fast-food industry, sources said.

The artificial intelligence robot was launched by China's leading web services company Baidu during its World Conference in 2015.
