Im­pactVi­sion uses AI to pick fresh food

TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

AI TACK­LES FOOD WASTAGE. $NA |­ A new San Fran­cisco startup is us­ing spec­troscopy and AI to de­liver deeper in­sights on the qual­ity of fresh pro­duce. Us­ing elec­tro­mag­netic ra­di­a­tion (think x-rays) the Im­pactVi­sion soft­ware scans the shape, den­sity and ma­te­rial of var­i­ous fruits and veg­eta­bles. The AI soft­ware can then com­pare scans to data sets to es­ti­mate shelf life or de­tect im­per­fec­tions. This sys­tem could help re­duce global food wastage, which is cur­rently es­ti­mated to be about a third of all pro­duced food.
