McDonald’s is teaming up with IBM to develop a faster drive-thru – powered by artificial intelligence.

The fast food giant began testing the new AI technology in Chicago earlier this year, but says the technology is currently only about 85% accurate.

The new tech is expected to be ready in 1-2 years.

Do you think an AI-powered drive-thru could work?  What’s your go-to McDonald’s order?
