In 5 years a computer system will know what I like to eat better than I do. The way humans taste things, they perceive flavor is very chemical and then neural, right?
So have something on our tongue and then our nose and we perceive the flavor by how the chemicals react with our neuro, neural system. In the future, a computer will be able to access larger positories of data that tell us about the chemical structure of various ingredients. It’ll be able to tell us about what humans really perceive in terms of the flavors and then be creative and actually put everything together.
And so what we want to do is actually figure out human, what’s good for humans let’s say, right? And develop machines that can actually help us achieve that. And so what we’ve been looking at is actually designing things, say recipes or other things, that taste good to humans so people will want to eat it but it’s also healthy for them. So if you go to like a middle school, right, you’ll see these kids, they got the lunch from the school, it’s meant to be meeting the nutrition standards.
But they often just like eat the brownie and throw the rest away. And so what we want to do is actually make the whole meal very flavorful so he’ll be achieving the nutritional objectives. In the future you might have a web application that knows not only your personalize medical characteristics,
but also your personalized taste. To take an example, a diabetic can’t eat sugar but in the future we might be able to model what it is that satisfies their sweet tooth and actually develop flavors and recipes that can, that’ll be healthy for them. So in 5 years the best recipes will start with the right molecules.
