KFC China uses facial recognition tech

The KFC restaurant in Beijing’s financial district is the first smart restaurant in China. They teamed up with search engine company Baidu to develop this facial recognition software. Baidu is often referred to as the Google of China. The device will determine the gender and approximate age of the customer as well as their expression. From there, the machine recommends a specific meal option and some other suggestions from the regular menu.

The device has done wonders already for publicity but it could also improve the efficiency. An article at The Guardian will inform you about the details!
