Can IBM’s Watson Cook Better Than A Top Chef?
A supercomputer creates a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
IBM’s Watson is an artificial intelligence computer system that was developed to solve complex problems and is capable of answering questions posed in “human speak.” Most recently, the supercomputer collaborated with chef instructor James Briscione to create a ‘Spanish Crescent’ recipe.
IBM researchers have watched Briscione work and how he goes about selecting ingredients to create a dish. These notes were fed through to Watson, who has studied over 20,000 recipes, data on food chemistry, and ratings from various people in categories like ‘olfactory pleasantness.’
