The first beers designed by a machine learning algorithm

IntelligentX, a London based brewing company, started to design beers using a machine learning algorithm. The algorithm, called Automated Brewing Intelligence (ABI), collects customer feedback data using a Facebook Messenger robot crawler and uses this information to improve the quality of the beer.

The use of machine learning enables the company to adapt the recipe and the brewing method, in order to improve the perceived quality of the beer. As of now, the company offers four basic beers, including a classic British golden ale, a British bitter, a hoppy American pale ale and a smokey Marmite brew.

As the company explains, in a video available at their webpage, the algorithm used the data gathered from the users to adjust the many parameters involved in creating a beer, including its composition and brewing process.

So, being a master brewer is no longer a job safe from the challenges of AI. Which job will be the next to go? Sommelier? Winemaker? Chef?
