Skynet Kitchens

For the Science Museum London's 2018 show on food and agriculture, I was commissioned to design and build an interactive installation.

Inspired by the recent boom in AI, I built an app which used machine learning to rate suggest ingredient combinations allowing users to create custom novel recipes.

During the show, I had on offer over 40 different ingredients which people used to test out their recipes. Behind the stand I projected the recipes people saved when using the Ipads, this allowed others to taste the recipes people had come up with.

Skynet was the name of the malevolent super intelligence in the Terminator franchise. I chose to reference this to raise the question of how far we are willing to allow intelligent machines into our lives.
