3 Ways AI Can Change the Role of Your Kitchen

According to a recent article in Venture Beat online magazine, the role of the kitchen can see some dramatic and positive changes. Consider that…

1. Innovation follows the money
A kitchen remodel can return anywhere from 70 to 120 percent at resale of the home. Thus, when homeowners invest in a kitchen, they often aren’t afraid to spend. This allows builders and homeowners to see a return on their investment. Expect to see exciting new advancements in the coming years.

2. Growth of smart kitchen appliances
Smart appliances and devices are the most tangible applications of AI in the kitchen, as major tech companies like Samsung and KitchenAid continue to develop smart refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, etc. We can also expect a wider variety of connected kitchen devices, like Amazon Echo and Google Home.

3. Personalized dining experiences
AI will play an active role in commercial kitchens and restaurants. As industries focus on personalizing product offerings for customers, restaurants may begin using applications that provide relevant recommendations and customized menus. For example, menus could be customized according to prior knowledge of customers’ food allergies, which would alleviate much of the stress some patrons encounter when dining out.

Bathroom of the Future

The Virginia Tech Center for Design Research brought its FutureHAUS Bathroom to Design & Construction Week in recently in Las Vegas. (Last year, it debuted its FutureHAUS Kitchen, which was just as ambitious and futuristic as this year’s offering.) A joint project of the school’s architecture and computer science programs, the FutureHAUS Bathroom shows what’s possible in home design. Some of the amenities that are integrated into the project bathroom include:

  • A bathroom mirror with customizable readouts for weather, traffic, TV display and more
  • A shower system that lets you know when you’re low on shower gel, conditioner or shampoo and places an online order for the item before you run out
  • Flooring that sends out an alert if a bathroom occupant falls
  • A chromatherapy-jetted tub for comfort
  • A high-tech bidet-style toilet with Bluetooth capability

It’s safe to say that when it comes to technology, the possibilities are endless.
