Creative combination

Some new things literally come out of thin air. For others, it’s a question of tweaking an existing recipe.

Now two Australian students have hit upon a novel method of making beer and developed an AI as part of their internship.

First, the pair created a database with some 260,000 craft beer recipes. Next step was to teach the system how beer is brewed and the importance of timing and temperature.

Finally, using statistics and popularity ratings they trained the AI to select outstanding recipes. Comparison yielded 60 points of data in recipes that could be altered.

Of the initial 200,000 then generated by the machine, 30 were produced and tested by local experts.

Something’s brewing. Sound familiar?
