How does Coca-Cola use AI in practice? Vending machines: Coca-Cola serves a large proportion of its drinks through vending machines. On many new machines, customers can interact with the machine up to a point where they can choose different customisations of their drinks with shots of altogether different drinks added. This was first introduced in America in 2009 called Coca-Cola Freestyle and according to statistics, around the world there are now 50,000 units in use serving 14 million drinks per day.

McDonald’s is set to announce that it has reached an agreement to acquire Dynamic Yield, a startup based in Tel Aviv that provides retailers with algorithmically driven "decision logic" technology. When you add an item to an online shopping cart, it’s the tech that nudges you about what other customers bought as well. Dynamic Yield reportedly had been recently valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars; people familiar with the details of the McDonald’s offer put it at over $300 million. That would make it the company's largest purchase since it acquired Boston Market in 1999.
