Last week, IBM announced that it would focus its computing power on the food world by taking Watson and unleashing him in the kitchen. (You remember Watson: the super computer that destroyed his competition on Jeopardy and made us all fear the future.) The way it works: A human being inputs a main ingredient and then Watson designs a recipe around it, suggesting ingredient combinations that, theoretically, we might never have considered. But don't worry chefs, you aren't obsolete just yet. A person still has to do the cooking. For now. Watson debuted his culinary prowess in a food truck at South By Southwest over the weekend, and these were some of the highlights.
