AI is probably going to help the food industry manufacture food which is much tastier than what we've been eating.

We've seen intelligent cooking robots in science fiction for decades, and now they finally seem to be becoming a reality. However, what is really amazing is not the development of the advanced functions of kitchen robots (that has culminated with Moley's human-like robotic arms), but the capabilities that AI has to understand our tastes.

The first, relatively simple, application of AI in cooking is the one used by PlantJammer and Foodpairing, two apps that create custom recipes using whatever ingredients are available to prepare an improvised meal. The developers collected data on aromas and flavors for years, and then (quite literally) fed it to the app's neural network.
