For years, engineers have been trying to hand over the task of cooking to robots, according tomedia. In 2019, Samsung has unveiled a robot chef that can complete all the boring parts of the kitchen. At CES in 2020, a robot pizza chef makes pies. Now, engineers from the University of Cambridge in the UK have teamed up with beko, an appliance company, to bring a robot that makes eggcakes.
On Monday, they released a video showing the results.
It seems that researchers are not only interested in physical processes, but also in the field of kitchens, and have developed a machine learning technique to train chefs to make eggcakes that satisfy human tasters.
“Eggcakes are one of those easy to make but hard to cook,” Fumiya Iida, an engineer at the University of Cambridge, said in a press release on Monday. We think this will be an ideal test to improve the robot chef’s ability and optimize taste, taste, smell and appearance. “
The team published their findings last month in IEERobotics and Automation Letters.
