CES 2020: Samsung-owned Whisk uses AI to tell you what to cook

Artificial intelligence is taking over the kitchen.

Samsung NEXT’s smart food platform Whisk has released a new solution for homeowners: a food AI technology that is able to suggest to users what to cook depending on what they have in their pantry and refrigerator.

The technology was unveiled during the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It comes about a year after Samsung acquired Whisk.

This innovation, simply called Food AI, allows users to save their favorite recipes into Whisk’s recipe box in order to get customized recipe suggestions. Food AI also collects users’ food preferences information including their dietary restrictions and the brands they usually use.

It was developed in partnership with nutritionists, food scientists, software engineers and grocery retailers from the U.S., U.K., Korea and Europe.

Whisk said Food AI is the company’s solution to curbing food waste.

“In the US an average person wastes 238 pounds of food per year - that’s a staggering 21 percent of the food they buy. Wasted ingredients also costs the average US household $1,800 per year… Whisk’s Food AI takes the ingredients you have and finds uses for them through an understanding of the kinds of recipes you enjoy, making your cooking experience simpler and smarter,” Whisk Product Head Nick Holzherr said.

Whisk demonstrated how Food AI works at the CES using the new Samsung Family Hub with the ViewInside camera. CES attendees can check it out at booth #15006 in the Connected Living zone.
