In this episode of “thinkfuture,” Chris navigates the fascinating and potentially treacherous waters of AI-generated food and beverages. With a nod to the recently unveiled AI-concocted “Year 3000 Coke,” Chris dives into the age-old question – just because we can, does it mean we should? Drawing inspiration from the iconic show “Futurama” and the ever-humorous Bender, Chris introduces listeners to “Bender’s Rule” – a tongue-in-cheek principle emphasizing that without taste buds, robots and AIs are bound to falter in the culinary department. Amidst the laughs and quips, the episode delves deeper, touching upon the limits of AI and their potential place (or lack thereof) in the gastronomic world. Can AI ever truly replicate human palates and sensibilities? Tune in as Chris dishes out a delectable blend of humor, nostalgia, and some food for thought.
