You might turn away from a Black Mirror episode claiming it’s too intense and revolutionary to bear, but truth be told, the future is already here. The form technology often takes today is of artificial intelligence (AI), as many innovative companies and high tech startups compete for the ultimate prize of making our daily lives plentiful easier.
Now, the hungry industry is penetrating the culinary field, claiming these brand new services will change the face of food as we know it.
Here are the startups we pinpointed as the most promising ones interlinked with enticing your tastebuds:
Available exclusively on their website, the PlantJammer app is everything you ever wished for but could not fully place your finger on what it was. The app aims to assist anyone – of all culinary levels – to improvise around the kitchen by using flavor mapping technology. The taste is acquired through scent analysis, as roughly 80% of taste comes from smell. The platform enables the user to select what items they have at their dispense, then whips up a winning recipe.
The “food AI company” takes pride in being able to gather customer data through a machine that studies the information collected and translating it into a prediction of consumer taste preferences. The food science research can assist by suggesting food delivery platforms, recommended cafeterias as well as provide suggestions for favorite food trends.
Data analysis collected from machine learning is also implemented by Foodpairing, who claim to be able to form a sensory map detailing which edibles could taste delicious when put together. This service is especially relevant for chefs and bartenders, who are constantly on the prowl for innovative dishes that have never been made or tasted before. The platform contains information regarding more than 1,500 ingredients in the database.
