In This KFC, A Robot Will Scan Your Face and Tell You What to Eat


Always can’t decide what to eat? We all have the habit of standing in front of the menu and racking our brains on what to eat, don’t you? Now, a robot can help you make the decision.

A KFC That Sells You Food in an Atas Way

In Beijing, a KFC was opened on Friday. While that isn’t really a new thing, the concept, though, is something that’s pretty darn cool. 

Imagine this: no more wasting brain cells thinking of what to eat. Instead, a robot will scan your face and determine what you should eat based on your age, gender and mood.

If you think about it, it’s like going to an atas restaurant and letting the chef decide your meal for you.

According to Baidu, the recommendations for food given will be suitable for all ages. For example, a man in his 20s will be given “a crispy chicken hamburger, roasted chicken wings and coke” while a woman in her 50s can expect “porridge and soybean milk for breakfast”.

And that’s not all. If it’s a repeat customer, the robot is able to remember the customer’s face and purchase history. This, they claimed, will be able to cut down on overall waiting time in the queue.

3Cs: Cool, Convenient and Clever

While this may provide convenience to some customers, others may also feel awkward as it is definitely a strange way to have consumption habits and decisions based one’s facial features and age.

Thankfully, it is not necessary for a customer to order what is recommended by the robot and he can simply override it. Customers still can make their own choices.

According to Zhao Li, the general manager of Beijing KFC, he thinks that this is cool and innovative and most importantly, provides convenience to customers.

The digitalisation will help to enhance the quality of service to customers in the restaurants, providing a more pleasant dining experience. This will also help to attract more young customers who are always on the lookout for new and interesting things.

KFC in China plans to continue to upgrade by introducing such technology to all 5000 stores in China, adapting to the rapidly improving digital technology and allowing more customers to enjoy such unique and fast service.
