Artificial intelligence (AI) is enabling our internet-of-things (IoT) technology to achieve new heights. Our devices are becoming smarter, thanks to sophisticated machine learning algorithms, in combination with interfaces that make the interactions between man and machine smoother and more accessible.
But while some technologies merely take an aspect of our lives and make it more convenient, less expensive, or more effortless, others have the power to reshape our lives in fundamental ways. The Internet of Things is making possible a new wave of smart kitchen gadgets, from sensors that know when the stove has been left on to forks that remind us to slow down and savor each bite.
So here’s how AI-powered IoT devices is reshaping one of the most important rooms of the home — our kitchens.
1. GROCERY ORDERING
Barcodes aren’t just for cashiers anymore. There are devices which let consumers use them in the home as a quick way to manage shared grocery lists. In addition to scanning barcodes, gadgets can also accept voice commands and even place grocery delivery orders to save you a trip to the store.
2. MONITORS AND ALARMS
Even for the best home chefs, things sometimes go wrong. Devices can help you keep an eye on things and can pass alerts about a problem at home to users anywhere in the networked world.
3. FLATWARE AND UTENSILS
Parents may impose a “no screens” rule at the dinner table, but that doesn’t mean your meal can’t involve some smart technology. We can use certain devices that use data and immediate feedback to help us be more mindful of what we’re eating and drinking.
4. VOICE-ACTIVATED DIGITAL ASSISTANTS
While not exclusive to the kitchen, voice-activated smart home hubs are pretty handy when your own hands are covered in flour or stuffed into oven mitts. Whether dictating recipes from your favorite food bloggers or quickly converting teaspoons to pints, these talking gadgets are ideal sous chefs.
6. COOKING DEVICES
When it comes to actually cooking food, the IoT market is less robust than you might expect. We’re still waiting for the killer-app version of the notorious “smart toaster”, for instance.
If enough cooking, storage, and other functions can be remotely operated, kitchens can afford to take a backseat to other, more prominent rooms of the house. This is one of the major advantage of using IoT in kitchen. The different applications of IoT in Kitchen ranks the highest when compared with other domains. Perhaps it may be due to the high living style and advancement of the applied technology in every walk of life. Ultimately, the smooth functioning of the devices and the knowledge for their operation are essential to achieve the expected results. Otherwise the traditional cookware can only save us.
