psfkUNFILTERED: Research Strategist Michelle Hum serves up original recipes for PSFK 2015 with IBM’s Chef Watson
Last Friday, we were fortunate to have Jonas Nwuke from IBM Watson at PSFK 2015 to talk about cognitive computing and the future of artificial intelligence. Ahead of the conference, Jonas was kind enough to give us beta access to Chef Watson, a cognitive cooking platform developed in partnership with Bon Appétit, in order to help us create a few Watson original recipes.
As one of the few New Yorkers that generally prefers to cook dinner instead of ordering Seamless, I was excited to boot up Chef Watson in my kitchen. After playing around with the platform a little, I realized Watson’s method of recipe generation is not unlike my own.
