Algorithm Creates Beer Recipes

What do algorithms do in their spare time? Make beer apparently. This is a great idea! Now, when you get a horrible beer you can just blame algorithms like Facebook does. wink

What do computers know about beer? They can create recipes, it turns out, and a new startup plans to sell beer recipes created by artificial intelligence, adjusting subsequent batches based on feedback from customers. The beer company is called IntelligentX, and its algorithm decides the precise balance of ingredients that goes into each batch. As customers drink them, they’re encouraged to visit a website and share their feedback.
