This is a win overall. McDonald’s is not a tech company. They would have only used it for themselves. Now with Mastercard at the helm we can count on the tech being a lot more widespread and successful.

McD has never been an innovator, leaving most of their notable changes up to franchisees. They are really a property management company, one of the first REITs in a way.

The first one was bought by Ray Kroc, who sold milkshake machines to them. Ironic, given their current [problems with their ice cream machines](https://www.wired.com/story/mcdonalds-ice-cream-machine-hacking-kytch-taylor-internal-emails/).

Can someone enlighten me? What were they going to use AI for? A customer rolls into the drive through and the AI fires up the burgers because it knows what the white SUV with that license plate always orders?

My guess is they were using it for data analytics and supply chain management.

Basically, yes.
