Predict a Pie

What makes a pie taste the best? What if you had all the ingredients in the world to come up with the perfect pie? In this workshop, you will wire up a neural network to do just that! You will then use your new knowledge to test a larger neural network that has used “machine learning” to analyse thousands of recipes to come up with new, creative combinations.

Predict a Pie

Program Details

In this workshop, we are introducing the concept of AI and how it is able to make predictions using a neural network. The textbook definition for AI or Artificial intelligence is, the ability of a digital computer to perform tasks that humans would do. So AI is just a computer that can be programmed to do  what we would do and can assist us with daily tasks.  

Wire up a neural network to predict which combinations of ingredients result in a delicious pie!

Did you know that neural networks are currently currently being used to make predictions in large sectors? Some examples are: weather predicting hurricanes, detecting climate change, predicting the rise of certain stocks etc. In this workshop we will be going over the basics of a neural network and how it can be used to make various kinds of predictions. For this we will take a look at the basic building blocks o a neural network and build our own neural network using pie ingredients!

For this workshop, you will be a baker and you want to become the best baker in town. But you have way too many ingredients and coming up combinations with each ingredients will just be too time consuming. We can use AI neural networks to help us come up with delicious recipes!

 

First, you will learn how a neural network works by building a simple network with ingredients of your choice and have two simple outputs such as delicious and disgusting pie. Then you will learn how to connect different nodes together to get the output you want with your ingredients choice. You will also see how not every combinations of ingredients actually would be delicious and how some unexpected combinations can turn out to be delicious. You will learn to do exactly what a neural network AI does and how it makes predictions based on random ingredients.

Toggle the ingredients in our pre-trained neural network to create your own recipe

Then you can test out our pre-trained neural network to get any random pie recipes or choose to get a sweet, quiche, pizza, savory or weird pie. You can also play around with the ingredients we have in our pre trained neural network and come up with recipe combinations on your own and see what our AI thinks it will taste like!
