The world of food, savors, textures and state of the art dishes has never been so entertaining. IBM and Bon Appetit have announced the launch of Chef Watson, a cognitive cooking app designed to create recipes. The app will be able to provide all the necessary by combining a giant food and recipe database with Watson’s know-how about human taste preferences and cognitive learning.
IBM enters the world of kitchen art together with Bon Appeit’s huge recipe database to teach Watson all about the art of cooking, recipes and food.
The entertaining app makes use of the cognitive computer, able to understand how different dishes and cooking styles work together through the system’s understanding of food chemistry and human taste preferences.
The cooking frenzy took over the world for some time now, with people getting more into the relaxing activity of mixing ingredients together and enjoying the sweet taste of their makings. Chef Watson’s algorithmic brain relies on an entire recipe database as well as data on flavor profiles, ingredients and the link between taste and psychology.
Smart machines have the capacity to help people explore and better understand the world around, discovering new possibilities and new channels to get things done. Some of them help people find what they are looking for, others monitor health and offer advice on better health practices and diets, and the most entertaining ones provide alternatives for the most delicious lifestyle. Such is the case with Chef Watson that will be our trusted partner when time comes to indulge ourselves in the sweet pleasure of sophisticated dishes.
IBM’s smart machine analyzed the content of more than 9,000 Bon Apetit recipes, gathering info about cooking patterns and terminology for us to benefit from a wide range of entertaining recipes. Combining this data with extensive knowledge of food chemistry and human taste preferences, Watson is able to come up with revolutionary mixes that use a completely new combo of ingredients.
So, experiment, trial and error will be your trusted partners in the world of Chef Watson that will offer the best suggestions when it comes to your favorite dishes.
With this initiative, IBM enters a completely new market, already popularized by all the innovation that is happening in the master chef universe for quite some time. Food is now fashion and Chef Watson is here to put a quality stamp on it. Culinary artificial intelligence by IBM will pleasantly unfold on our plates, presenting the best cooking alternatives.
