The year could end with a deal between the fast-food giant and the financial service provider

According to a statement, McDonald's will sell the artificial intelligence (AI) PROVIDER Dynamic Yield to Mastercard for an undisclosed amount. The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2022.

Dynamic Yield specializes in delivering individualized product recommendations, offers and content based on multiple factors such as previous purchases, page views, time of the day, store traffic, and trending products.
