Chef Watson generates recipes in collaboration with a human user, who is able to input ingredient constraints and make edits to the generated recipe. Chef Watson can even judge the novelty and attraction of the generated recipes.
The culinary system uses ‘artificial intelligence algorithms that draw on big data techniques and disparate data sources from culinary traditions, chemoinformatics, and hedonic psychophysics… A generative algorithm captures many stages of human creativity, and uses knowledge derived from human history and culture as inspiration to create new ideas never imagined before.'”
