The computer learned to determine the recipes of dishes from photographs

Facebook experts have developed an artificial intelligence system that can restore recipes by

their photos. She does it in a few seconds.

As a result of the analysis, the system gives the usera list of ingredients and even instructions for creating a dish. Of course, artificial intelligence will not be able to determine the specific type of flour used for the cake or, for example, the exact temperature of the oven when baking. However, the recipe still turns out to be close to the original.

The system uses computer vision toextract information from a snapshot. Two neural networks work in the program: one defines the ingredients, and the second develops the actual instruction. More precisely, she finds the right one in the database. It is reported that it includes approximately 350,000 of the original million recipes.
