(PlanetVending.com) The combination of 5G, AI and Quantum Computing will be a massive game-changer for the vending industry to personalize purchases for the end-user. In the world of vending, it will mean we can create new machines that interact with consumers on a far deeper level. The machine will recognise you as you approach it. It will recognise your buying behaviour to the extent that it’ll know what you want before you have the chance to choose. It’s all about algorithms of choice, about learning the habits of each and every individual that uses the machine.
In the future, everything will be based on an algorithm. The machine will know a customer’s drinking behaviour, what your favourite drinks are. Through your interaction with it, the machine will learn about you. It’ll recognise where you’re looking on the screen and respond accordingly.
