Is There A Role For Google’s AI Research In Baking And Cooking?

December 4, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Employees at Google’s office in Pittsburgh thought their work in artificial intelligence (AI) needed to be applied to projects smaller than optimizing parts for airplanes and spaceships. So, working with an in-house chef, they turned their attention to baking, specifically to cookies. Then the founder of the Gluten Free Goat Bakery got involved. Jeanette Harris worked with Google's AI research team to develop a cookie recipe using machine learning and artificial intelligence. A lot of testing was done, with some batches turning out bad, others turning out pretty good. It took about 60 batches – one of them surprisingly includes cardamom in the recipe – to get it right. Harris and her counterpart at Google said AI probably would not be useful for a small bakery, but they could see it potentially helpful in larger baking and cooking operations.
