Frankfurt Airport in Germany is staging a six-week trial of a robotic head powered by artificial intelligence (AI) as an information resource for travelers.
The FRAnny robot will supply information on topics like departure gates, Wi-Fi access, and restaurant locations, communicating with passengers in nine languages.

FRAnny employs data from the airport's information system, and is capable of understanding and answering questions from humans on airport facilities and travel information; a deployment at Berlin's central railway station is scheduled for June.
The service is a joint project between Fraport and DB Systel, the information technology service provider for Germany's Deutsche Bahn rail firm.
