The computer won’t just throw random ingredients together, however.
According to Varshney, IBM scientists hope it will create recipes not
only taste good but are also healthy. To accomplish the task, a database
of successful recipes are uploaded to the computer.
“Then we remix them, substitute things, do all kinds of other
modifications and generate millions of new ideas for recipes,” Varshney
said. “The second step is to take those millions of ideas and find the
best ones. To do that we try to predict what humans will find flavorful,
based on some basic ideas from chemistry and psychology.”
Varshney and his fellow scientist hope the computer will not only
generate recipe combinations that taste good, but also original
combinations of ingredients. For example, the computer already created a
recipe that infused Spanish paella and Indian curry, combining
turmeric, other Indian spices, potatoes, pork, beef and a mango rum
topping. The scientists thought the end result was rather tasty.
Ultimately, Varshney hopes a similar computer will help make school
lunches that are more attractive to students and help combat obesity by
creating recipes that satisfy food cravings with fewer calories. IBM
does not expect the computer to be available for production until about
