How Restaurants Can Use Chef Watson & Plate IQ to Reduce Waste

IBM's Chef Watson makes it easy for restaurants to reduce waste by better utilizing excess inventory. With Chef Watson, users enter a list of excess ingredients, choose a recipe style, and immediately get original recipe ideas to review.

Chef Watson has analyzed over 10,000 recipes and combines this data with its knowledge of food chemistry and the psychology of people's likes and dislikes to generate delicious and original recipe ideas.

For example, let’s say that a restaurant realizes that this week they’re going to have an excess of strawberries and cream. They may want to introduce a special that week featuring strawberries and cream to prevent waste.

When the users enters “Strawberry” and “Cream” into Chef Watson, they’ll find plenty of delicious recipe ideas to serve as inspiration.
