HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2019 / McDonald's is buying a tech startup that it hopes will help it sell customers more of what they want.
The fast food giant announced Monday that it is acquiring Dynamic Yield, an Israeli company that uses artificial intelligence to give consumers personalized experiences.
McDonald's said it would use the startup's technology to tailor the items displayed on menu boards at drive-thru outlets based on the weather, how busy the restaurant is and the time of day. It will also instantly recommend extra items based on a customer's initial order. That approach could help McDonald's (MCD) boost sales of breakfast or McCafe items.
Tech stocks continues to be one of the hottest sectors this year, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mobile technology being some of the top leaders. These disruptive innovations have been driving tech companies' performance and according to key measures chart reported at Nasdaq.com, have outperformed the global stocks.
As companies keep pushing the limits of this technology, we look for those that have disruptive innovations. Gopher Protocol Inc. (GOPH) recently completed initial testing of its Avant! AI mobile application, which is the interface to Gopher's Avant! AI system. Gopher Protocol has a suite of mobile applications, GopherInsight™, and their Avant! Machine learning system, which connects to several devices on the network, an Internet of Things (IoT) component.
Specializing in the development of these IoT and AI enabled networking and tracking technologies, Gopher Protocol includes GopherInsight™, a global mesh network technology platform for both mobile and fixed solutions.
