KFC’s New Facial Recognition Software

Recommended Posts

:blink:

What kind of chicken does your face look like?

KFC just reached finger lickin’ levels of freaky. 

The fast food chain recently debuted facial recognition technology at a restaurant in Beijing, China, thanks to a partnership with the Chinese search engine Baidu. A spokesperson for KFC told The Guardian that the artificial intelligence-enabled system provides meal recommendations based on a consumer’s age and mood. 

According to a Baidu press release obtained by Tech Crunch, the machine would offer a male customer in his early 20s something like “a set meal of crispy chicken hamburger, roasted chicken wings and Coke.” On the other hand, a female customer in her 50s would be given a recommendation of “porridge and soybean milk for breakfast.” 

After making the meal assessment based on your features, the AI-enabled machine can reportedly save the picture of your face to remember your order for future KFC visits.

That's the lamest excuse for data mining I've seen yet. I'd be certain to avoid KFC.

Will it be able to identify people with chicken pieces hanging out of their mouths?
