Electronic Tongue Wants To Put Me Out of Business

Written By Scott Joseph On September 29, 2014

Red curryNot 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?
