Scientists using artificial intelligence to develop tastier vegan foods (Video)

Intellectually, many of us know the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, but switching over can be daunting, especially if one hasn’t had too much experience with cooking vegetarian or vegan dishes, and also if the tastebuds haven’t really gotten used to new flavours. That’s why many people may add in some mock meats, just to ease the transition, though whether it actually tastes good and “real” enough is up for debate. Now a team of Chilean scientists is adding technology to the mix, using artificial intelligence to create smarter and better-tasting meat replacements. Founders Matias Muchnick, Karim Pichara and biochemist Isidora Silva of food-tech startup The Not Company are leveraging recent developments in deep learning algorithms to create entirely plant-based foods that are healthy for people, and…
