Fridge and AI?
As time goes on, we are starting to see many applications of AI including cars, cellphones, alarms, and even our thermometers. With the inclusion of AI in our everyday-used objects, it makes our life relatively easy to live not having to worry about the things that used to be stressed a few decades ago. This decade has arguably seen one of the biggest times of technological innovation from iPhones to self-driving cars, but what about fridges? According to government data from the United States, almost 100% of homes have a refrigerator. That being said, 1.3 billion tonnes of food are also wasted every year globally. This waste accounts for a third of all food produced globally. But that’s where our technological innovation comes in!
Over the past few years, many companies, including Samsung, LG, and Amazon, have developed their own versions of a smart fridge. A smart fridge works just like any other fridge; however, the only difference is that it is connected to the cloud and keeps track of the contents in the fridge (in this case food). In terms of keeping track of the contents within the fridge, that’s where artificial intelligence comes in.
