Beside focusing on gaming, imaging and sensing, Sony AI is now exploring gastronomy with the Gastronomy Flagship Project for the purpose of enhancing the creativity and techniques of chefs. The Gastronomy Flagship Project involves the research and development of an AI application that will help with recipe creation, a robotics solution that can assist chefs and a community co-creation component.
The AI-powered recipe creation app is a daunting undertaking, as there are an infinite number of ingredients that can be combined and they should consider location, climate, season and a variety of other health and food preferences. Sony AI will be gathering data sources like taste, aroma, flavor and molecular structure to help chefs around the world creatively pair ingredients, as well as put together both recipes and menus.
