UK supermarkets to use face scans for underage alcohol sales

The UK Home Office has approved a pilot scheme of using artificial intelligence (AI) systems to check the age of people buying alcohol. The AI system will scan customers’ faces and estimate their age; those who appear to be underage will be asked to provide digital identification through an approved smartphone app. The developers say that no images used by the age verification system will be shared with participating stores.
