Already no one will be surprised that the artificialIntellectuals are entrusted with writing pictures and creating musical works, but the leadership of the Mackmyra distillery in Sweden found it, perhaps, a very unusual application. They decided to use a computer algorithm to develop ... a new sort of whiskey! And Finnish developers from Fourkind and even Microsoft will help them in this.
Making a whiskey is very complex andlabor-intensive process. After all, it’s not just grain and water: the taste and color are influenced by such parameters as filtration, distillation, methods of malting. They calculated the ideal sort of artificial intelligence: it will take as a basis the data on whiskey, which the plant already produces, and will also analyze sales information so that the created formula will find a positive response among buyers.
Details on developing a new variety are notreported, but it is known that the creation will take place under the strict control of experts of the distillery Mackmyra, who as a result will appreciate the work of artificial intelligence. But Microsoft, in its blog, already promises that the first whiskey created by a computer algorithm will be available this fall.
Just do not forget about the most important stagein the preparation of whiskey - his insistence. To get the drink the desired color and aroma, it is insisted in oak or wooden barrels for several years - from 3 to 18, but you can and more.
In March this year at Sotheby’s inLondon will have a very unusual lot - an installation, the main element of which is a neural network that constantly generates unique portraits. The buyer of this lot will provide themselves with original portraits for life (yes, they never repeat).
