Food-Pairing Technology Can Reduce Food Waste

August 15, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
IBM scientists believe the same artificial intelligence technology that beat Ken Jennings in Jeopardy can also be applied to cut food waste. For now, the advanced algorithm they have developed pairs unexpected ingredients based on flavor compounds, viz., a pudding made with porcini mushrooms, or a burrito made with chocolate and edamame. The scientists say they can expand food-matching or food-pairing software beyond that, however, using the same algorithm to provide personalized meal plans that would reduce food waste and create varied meals for people who have severe dietary constraints.
