angry tapir writes “Government-funded researchers in Taiwan have developed a vending machine that recommends purchases based on people’s faces. We’ve previously discussed a Japanese vending machine that recommended drinks based using facial recognition. The Taiwanese machine can look for clues like whether a person has glasses, a beard or a mustache and based on that it guesses their use of make-up or frequency of shaving. It then might recommend a facial mask, razor, or health products that people in a certain category are statistically likely to buy.”
