Digital Gastronomy – Wired Science

September 19, 2013

Would you trust a computer to make dinner for you?

IBM researchers foresee a not-so-distant future when algorithms will be a replacement for inefficient customer service models, a diagnostic tool for doctors, and believe it or not, chefs.

Researcher Lav Varshney has already built an algorithm that creates recipes from parameters like cuisine type, dietary restrictions, and course.

We searched the site for a Caribbean plantain dessert and found a tasty concoction with rum and coconut sauce. With the same parameters, IBM’s computer generated a list of about 50 ingredients, including orange, papaya, and cayenne pepper, from which IBM researcher and professional chef Florian Pinel developed a mind-blowing Caymanian parfait.
