Using AI to create flavor combinations: IBM & McCormick

Techstination feature for Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Creating flavor combinations using artificial intelligence.    IBM Research has partnered with McCormick to create a line of one dish recipe mixes that will soon be on the market.   Dr. Richard Goodwin is the manager of the Computational Creativity Research Group at IBM…

“The computer takes all this data about the formulas and the raw materials and the sensory results and learns patterns of things that work well.  Combinations of ingredients that pair well together, functional substitutes and other things.  And then it uses these to generate new suggestions.”

Dr. Goodwin says the results have been pretty impressive…and later this year you’ll be able to put the products to the taste test yourself.
