Did Google's AI Develop the Perfect Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie?

How many tries, and how much time, does it take a computer with Artificial Intelligence to develop the perfect gluten-free chocolate chip cookie?

Celiac.com 12/28/2017 - Big data gets credit for a lot of things, much of it deserved. Data has brought a measure of sanity and relevance to internet searches, advertising and social media. But can data bake a perfect cookie? Google says it can.

The result? A gluten-free chocolate chip cookie that derives its alleged perfection from, wait for it...cardamom.

In an effort to demonstrate Google's new technology for experimental design, a research team dreamt up a real-world challenge: “designing the best possible chocolate chip cookies using a given set of ingredients," says senior staff engineer Daniel Golovin.

Google engineers established the inputs: chocolate, flour, vanilla etc. Google employees would test a recipe, give it a numerical rating and then the system would recalibrate the recipe based on the feedback.

They did this dozens of times, each time baking, rating, and feeding the ratings back in for a new recipe iteration. Once the AI perfected a baseline chocolate chip cookie, the engineers turned to up Jeanette Harris of the Gluten Free Goat Bakery & Cafe. The team wanted their final cookie to be gluten-free.

They also threw the AI a curve by adding a couple of tricky ingredients to the mix, cardamom and Szechuan pepper, just to see how the AI would respond. The result was an entirely new gluten-free cookie: The Chocolate Chip and Cardamom Cookie.
