Since profit seems to be the main game it figures some of the AI games would be applied. One AI routine is figuring reading faces and figuring what profiling to use according to facial expressions. When the AI says you are upset it wouldn't be the time to be playing extra searching and questioning. Then there is by stats. By stats army guys will be harassed probably due to more occurrences of tripping explosives alarms. A female TSA asked me if there was any reason why my laptop showed traces of explosives. Standing there in uniform going to a deployment I had to figure she would take any good reason why to let it pass. I told her check it good because I couldn't watch it when out to dinner. What could a TSA person do with facial recognition? Probably make a lot of money taking that job of being another person sitting around. What good will it do? Win the frivolous gadgets to blow money on award of the year.

If it can recognize that we are angry (by expression) maybe the AI can signal the wifi to provide coupons for alcohol in the airports. That's the only practical application for this technology.
