Autonomous Cooking: Meet Moley’s Robotic Chef 

The world’s first robotic chef: it’s real, and although it’s set for a 2017 release, it’s a truly hi-tech technology on a two year precipice of real world application. It can cook like a personal chef, use kitchen utensils professionally, and even follow recipes.

Designed by the Shadow Robot Company, which makes products for the nuclear industry and NASA, and exclusive to Moley Robotics, the robotic chef is a fraction of an automated kitchen prototype that was displayed in Germany’s leading industrial products trade show, the Hannover Messe. 

The kitchen prototype currently remains the only viable platform upon which the automated chef can operate on, but Moley Robotics is already hoping to collaborate with designers, homebuilders, and different companies to integrate the system into any kitchen.

At the Hannover Messe, the public was treated to an impressive display at the efforts of Moley Robotics, getting a chance to see just exactly how an automated chef really works. Shadow Robot Company credits the automated chef with being able to reproduce the exact movements and functionality of a human hand and reports the technology uses 20 motors, 24 joints, and 129 sensors for optimal performance.

The actual technology is made up of two long robotic arms that perform the actions of stirring, mixing, chopping, and other cooking actions. It can be operated by touchscreen or remotely through a smartphone, and retracts into itself when not in use. 

Skeptics of the autonomous chef believe machine-made food will turn out inferior to man-made food, but Shadow Robot Company digresses. According to the company, the science behind the technology is what’s going to separate this autonomous chef from mundane machines. So to truly give the autonomous chef the ability to fully recreate homemade food, they had a real chef teach their prototype how to cook.

Shadow Robotics Company enlisted the help of British chef Tim Anderson to 3D record his movements while he was cooking. The data gathered from Anderson’s movements was then digitally transferred into the autonomous chef using hand-tailored algorithms created by Moley Robotics, Shadow Robot Company, Stanford University, and Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies. Thanks to the collective data, the autonomous chef claims to cook as nuanced and delicate as that of a human hand. 

The technology behind bringing the autonomous chef to life is really the most exciting aspect of Moley Robotics’ creation. With the ability to 3D capture human interaction and movement and digitally transfer it onto an autonomous platform, the possibilities for automation really are endless. From possibly automating the human delicacy of surgery to being able to recreate the imperfections that make handmade items so besought, the autonomous chef could mean a whole lot more than less nights spent slaving over a stove. 

And the results, thus far, have been overwhelmingly positive. Anderson himself, who said he didn’t think such a level of success would be possible for a machine to achieve, was impressed with the performance of an autonomous cook, saying,

"I chose crab bisque as a dish because it’s a real challenge for human chefs to make well, never mind a machine. Having seen – and tasted – the results for myself, I am stunned. This is the beginning of something really significant: a whole new opportunity for producing good food and for people to explore the world’s cuisines. It’s very exciting.”

Moley Robotics is looking to scale down the robotics for a consumer market when they retail in 2017, with smaller cooking arms and a more compact frame. Moley’s autonomous chef will also be supported by the company’s digital library of over 2,000 different dishes and recipes, where users will be able to upload and customize their own recipes for full immersion interaction. Moley says their digital library will be known as “iTunes for Food.” 

The point of new technologies like the autonomous chef is not to replace humans, says Moley, but instead, it is meant to enhance user experience and interaction with the world around us while making things just a little bit easier. In fact, Moley says its autonomous chef could actually improve user’s skills in the kitchen. And whether you’re skeptical of the self-cooking kitchen or excited to see what other frontiers its technology might entail, 2017 will be the year to look out for.

Even Ross Douthat came out swinging yesterday in favor of the slain cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo ("The Blasphemy We Need"). Since it is difficult to find even one square inch of common ground between right and left in American politics, this ought to have come as good news. Unfortunately, Douthat's Take is yet another of the many, many exercises in facile hypocrisy we've seen since yesterday.

Why you should never take yourself too seriously http://virg.in/dts
A little humour is good for the soul – regardless of how old you may be. We should all seek fun in our lives. Some people may call it being childish, but in my opinion there's nothing wrong with being a kid at heart....

London alleys.

Two of these have establishments dating back to the 1600s.
