An AI that can fetch you the recipe from just the PHOTO

These days there is an AI for everything in life. Well that’s an exaggeration! But seriously, a team of scientists at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have developed an AI that can tell you the recipe for different foods by just ‘looking’ at their photos. Code-named ‘Pic2Recipe’, the AI application was developed by collecting millions of recipes found on the internet.

Whilst the idea is exciting, the results are not yet perfect. Over a series of experiments, Pic2Recipe successfully returned the right results only 65% of the time. A demo page has been created, where you can test the AI for yourself.

 

 

There is clearly still a lot of work to be done to perfect the AI, but if you would like to read more about the development of ‘Pic2Recipe’ so far, here is the paper published by the CSAIL team

A MUFC fan with serious love for gadgets and all things tech. Not the movie-loving type, more like the kinda guy you'll see with a PS4 controller. I like good music - any type, as long as it sounds good. Oh and I'm a very picky eater too. Apart from science and tech, I follow all kinda stuff in politics, sports, business and entrepreneurship.
