Sony launches ‘Sony AI’ to drive R&D in gastronomy


Sony AI will launch three flagship research and development projects into artificial intelligence, one of which will focus on the gastronomy sector. Its goal is to “unleash human imagination and creativity with AI.”

Sony AI Will combine world-class fundamental research and development with Sony’s unique technical assets, driving transformation across all existing business domains and contributing to the creation of new business domains. One of Sony AI’s long-term goals is to contribute to the resolution of shared global issues extending beyond Sony’s business domains, according to the press release.

CNBC reports the area of gastronomy was chosen by Sony because “the technology needed for a robot to handle the complex and varied task of food preparation could in turn be applied to a wider range of skills and industries.”
