KFC Facial Recognition Trial [Link]

January 10, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

Really, what could go wrong here:

the system would tell a male customer in his early 20s to order a set meal of crispy chicken hamburger, roasted chicken wings and coke for lunch, while a female customer in her 50s would get a recommendation of porridge and soybean milk for breakfast.

This is probably the future whether we like it or not. Face and voice recognition is reaching a tipping point where documenting and influencing individuals without consent is trivial. Sure, this has long been a tactic of human merchants the difference now is that the efforts can be coordinated and compiled across multiple outlets.
