Artificial intelligence earned in a London bar

As if the Ministry of Health had not warned, we stillperiodically go to the bars. You must admit that it is very offensive and unpleasant when you wait for your order, and the one who has just arrived is already sipping a glass of his drink. To avoid such situations, the first smart bar appeared in London. We will tell you how it works and what it can do.

Why scan faces in bars

British company DataSparQ has developedtechnology that helps employees of public institutions to form a virtual queue without using coupons, which we are used to in the electronic queue of banks or MFCs.

The bottom line is scanning people's faces,who went to the bar, and lining them in order of priority. To do this, special cameras are hanging in the hall, and next to the bar counter there is a screen with an electronic list of clients. So visitors themselves will be able to track when their turn comes, and will roughly understand how much they will have to wait. The staff of the institution receives this information on the tablets with which it works, and knows in what order to serve guests.

“Uncertainty in latency along withwedged into the queue negatively affects the behavior of visitors in bars. A.I. Bar will provide a first come, first served system. This will make life easier for both visitors and employees, ”said DataSparQ spokesman John Wiley.

The technology has already been applied in one of the barsLondon, and staff praised its effectiveness. Thanks to the application of the described technology, customers stopped complaining that they did not receive timely service. Consequently, imperceptibly for themselves, they increased their level of satisfaction from visiting the institution.

The camera recognizes the age of the bar visitor

We all know that in practice, verification of documentswhen selling alcohol, it is carried out only in cases where the seller, waiter or bartender are not sure of the real age of the client. Their task is not to sell alcohol to persons under a certain age. In general, they cope with it, but sometimes there are mistakes.

The smart bar system provides an opportunityscanning visitor’s faces, followed by processing them using artificial intelligence algorithms. If the system determines that the guest has not reached the appropriate age, the waiter will receive a notification about the need to check the documents.

The system stores data for 24 hours. After this time, they will be destroyed. Therefore, users do not have to worry about their digital security and anonymity.

The company, which created the smart bar system, even cites figures of the effectiveness of its development and states that the introduction of its system will sell an extra 76 million pints of beer per year.

How much does face recognition system cost?

As a model of smart system distributionBara, its creator, DataSparQ, chose a subscription. For a month of use, you have to pay 199 pounds (about 15,000 rubles). Not so much for a major improvement in their institution. Especially if it attracts new customers who will only be happy to visit a bar where they will not have to endure arrogant customers who are trying to get service without waiting in line.

Looks good. And what do you think? Will we discuss this in our Telegram chat? Or leave your comments below.
