Meet your new chef; Watson, a computer


At the Food Valley Expo Marc Teerlink of the Watson Group presented the new cognitive computer from IBM, Watson. The computer system develops exciting new dishes using Big Data and thereby offers chefs a new way of thinking. IBM tends to think of food and cooking as an art but in fact, there’s a massive amount of chemical and neural science that underlies a great dish. IBM’s cognitive cooking system can reason about flavor the same way a human uses his palate. This way, it can also combine flavors that people would not think of. Onno Kokmeijer of restaurant Chiel Bleu (2 Michelinstars) in Amsterdam, did make a couple of dishes created by Watson at the Food Valley Expo.
