AI Bartender Serving Up Age-Based Craft Beers

Alcohol Beer Technology Tokyo Kanto

Electronics maker NEC has used artificial intelligence to come up with craft beers reflecting the characteristics of age groups. The AI analyzed some 300 magazines from a 40-year-period to propose beer tastes for people in their 20s to 50s.

The brews have varying colors, scents, sourness, bitterness and sweetness for each generation. NEC officials said they hope people will enjoy the products during online drinking sessions.
