Not even restaurant critics are immune from having robots take over their jobs.
According to this article in the New York Times, the Thai government has funded the creation of a machine that can rate the authenticity of Thai dishes. The robot, called e-Delicious, is a boxy contraption that uses 10 sensors in its electronic tongue to evaluate levels of spiciness, taste and smell. It gives a rating based on government standards for the dish.
Sure, it might be able to evaluate the food, but can it deliver its results with snarky prose?
