samsung releases food, an ai powered smart recipe app

Tech giant Samsung has unveiled a new app, known as Food, offering “personalized, AI-powered food and recipes” in eight languages and 104 countries.

The app uses the Whisk food database — also owned by Samsung and now rebranded — and seems a smart move for the Korean electronics giant, considering its vast range of domestic appliances.

Food allows users to search some 160,000 international recipes, which can be saved and curated into eating plans. The app works on smartphones as well as Samsung Family Hub appliances such as fridges and freezers, allowing families to plan ingredient lists and grocery deliveries.

Food can provide recipe recommendations based on available items and has a “personalize recipe” function that uses AI to create bespoke vegan or vegetarian versions of popular dishes. Nutritional breakdowns can be viewed at any time, and users can add items directly to shopping carts at e-commerce checkouts. In addition, using connected cooking, ovens can be preheated and timer set on compatible devices.

Samsung has ambitions to add over one million users to the app worldwide. Although numerous recipe apps already exist (Paprika, Mealtime, Yummly, etc..), Samsung may have an edge due to its position in the smart appliances sector, making it a known quantity to consumers.

Integration with Samsung Health is also planned for future updates, syncing with parameters like BMI and calorie consumption, plus offering diet management suggestions. By 2024, the app will also incorporate AI vision tech, allowing Samsung Food to recognize items through smartphone cameras and provide instant nutrition information.

Samsung Food is available to download now on Android and iOS, or you can head to the official website to create an account.

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
