Japanese technology company Sony works together with the University School of Computer Science in the development of a home-use robot capable of cooking and serving food thanks to the use of artificial intelligence.
Among the skills of the potential robot would be the manipulation of ingredients, the preparation of the meal -with the possibility of adjusting details such as preparation methods- and the presentation and arrangement of the dishes on the table.
Although the project is currently focused on research and not on short-term direct marketing, the company hopes to present a prototype in the coming years.
The project stems from a research and development agreement of the US subsidiary of Sony and the university on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, which they hope will address the potential needs of households and small businesses seeking to automate the preparation and delivery of food and make these more efficient processes.
Japan is a leading country in robotic implantation, a sector whose use could have a global economic impact of up to 4.5 trillion dollars (3.7 trillion euros) in 2025.
The Asian country has been a pioneer in the development of robots for home integration, such as the Android Pepper, from Softbank, or the dog Aibo, from Sony itself, which this January launched after more than a decade a new version of the Intelligent and able to create emotional connections with humans, which exhausted all their existences during the anticipated sale.
Moley displays two high precision robotic arms capable of doing the full job … and cleaning later. The creator of this robot is Mark Oleynik, a mathematician and programmer who is convinced thanks Moley, anyone can have access to eating dishes made by the best chefs in the world. Oleynik assures that Moley first captures the movements of the cooks to reproduce them later; although that mechanical precision can never replace, according to Oleynik, the creativity of a true master of the kitchen.
