KFC now lets customers pay with face
    2017-September-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

首家刷脸支付餐厅落户杭州

Diners at a KFC store in Hangzhou will have a new way to pay for their meal. Just smile.

Customers will be able to use a “Smile to Pay” facial recognition* system at the tech-heavy, health-focused concept store, part of a drive by Yum China to lure a younger generation of consumers.

The multi-step process includes two seconds of facial scanning with a 3-D camera and then a “detection algorithm*” which guarantees a user’s identity.

The algorithm can detect features that only come from living beings which blocks people from using photos.

Using the phone number too further ensures the security of transactions. It also means there is no need to get out wallets or smartphones to pay.

The Hangzhou store involves a tie-up with Ant Financial, which is behind the facial recognition software.

Alibaba affiliate Ant said this is the first commercial application of the technology worldwide.

Diners can pay by scanning their faces at an ordering kiosk and entering a phone number, which is meant to guard against people cheating the system.
