From besting the world’s greatest esports players to discovering new drugs to help people, AI or Artificial Intelligence is being used almost everywhere. It’s not surprising that AI would also be used in the betterment of the most mundane tasks, which is what the British Artificial Intelligence (AI) firm DataSparQ has done with its A.I. Bar. The bar uses AI to place drinkers in a dynamically intelligent queue and cut down on the time taken to serve a pint. Here’s three things you need to know about it.
How AI Bar works
One of the great things about A.I. Bar is that it doesn’t require completely overhauling a bar. The SaaS service costs £199 per month and can be setup with a webcam, display screen and an internet connection. The machine learning algorithm used in A.I Bar automatically recognises a person that’s standing at the bar and assigns them a number. It also shows a live feed of everyone at the bar on a display, along with a number above each customer’s head, which represents their place in the queue.
