Robot Chefs & Mushroom Batteries


IBM’s Watson, the computer system that won Jeopardy! in 2011, came out with a cookbook in April 2015 called Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson. This cookbook, developed in a collaboration among IBM’s Watson and actual human chefs, is meant to help food lovers and cooks come across new flavor combinations that surprisingly work. In other food & tech news, researchers at UC Riverside have created a new type of battery that relies on the porous structures of portabella mushrooms.
