The presence and development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been impactful in many sectors. Both small to big corporations in the food industry are now incorporating more AI tools and machinery in their establishment. The presence of computer vision with AI allows for an enhancement in both productivity as well as better quality.
Artificial Intelligence helps in tripling the speed of the task accomplished in a day, such as the packaging of food prepared, proper storage of all the packages, and even keeping the target of food deliveries at hand. All these tasks are done precisely, with little to no hindrance whatsoever, by utilizing computer vision programs.
Using AI and computer vision allows the humans in charge, say chefs, to make their menus diversified, including a variety of dishes from different cuisines. All one needs to do is give accurate instructions to the set program, and the guidelines are automatically followed by AI generative machinery. This helps in maintaining the necessary health measures, reducing the chances of the food prepared being spoiled due to ill packaging.
Some other advantages of introducing AI and computer vision in the food industry are:
- Reduction in human error and the guarantee of perfect dishes prepared.
- AI, when trained, helps food companies to predict the trends going on in the industry. This way, preparing dishes as per customer demand becomes much easier.
- Recognizing the many safety hazards taking place in the factory or kitchen of a food corporation. Then, correcting it to ensure appropriate maintenance of the hygiene levels.
- As human error gets reduced, the probability of waste generation also decreases. A computer vision-operated machine would make sure that even one inch of flour is used as it was instructed to be.
Many computer vision companies in India work toward developing a variety of programs and machinery to handle all the tough tasks so that humans can keep an eye on the quality and presentation of the food being prepared. For all the companies, many more inventions and discoveries are being done in this direction to develop the food industry to be more tech-savvy and to keep in pace with the ongoing competition.
