Chinese Internet giant Alibaba on Tuesday opened its first hi-tech hotel in Hangzhou where guests can check-in by simply scanning their faces.
FlyZoo Hotel in Hangzhou, capital of east China’s Zhejiang Province, where Alibaba has its headquarteres, is known as the company’s first “future hotel”.
The facial recognition system installed in the hotel also enables customers to use their faces as key cards to open doors and access other hotel services. Users can also control the lights, television and curtains in the room via Alibaba’s voice-activated digital assistant, while robots are deployed to serve dishes, cocktails and coffee.
