It is no surprise that artificial intelligence is trusted painting and music-making, but the management of the distillery Mackmyra in Sweden found that a very unusual application. They decided to use computer algorithms to develop new whiskies! And this will help them in the Finnish developers of Fourkind and even Microsoft.
Creating whiskey is a very complex and time-consuming process. It’s not just grain and water: the taste and color effect settings such as filtration, distillation, methods of malting. To calculate an ideal variety trusted artificial intelligence: the basis of he will take the data about whiskey, which the plant already produces, and will analyze sales information to create the formula found positive response among customers.
Details about the development of new varieties is not disclosed, but we know that the establishment will be under the strict supervision of experts distillery Mackmyra, which will evaluate the work of artificial intelligence. But Microsoft in his blog already promises that created the first computer algorithm, the whiskey will be available this autumn.
Just do not forget about the most important stage in the preparation of whiskey — his insistence. The drink to get the desired color and flavor, he insisted in oak or wooden casks for several years — from 3 to 18, but can be more.
In March this year at Sotheby’s auction in London, a very unusual lot — installation, the main element of which is a neural network that is constantly generating unique portraits. The buyer of this lot will provide original portraits of a lifetime (Yes, they never again).
