The Artificial Intelligence behind SmarterAssist, the new FridgeCam Feature.

Your Life just got Smarter™ with SmarterAssist 

We are excited to announce the recent development of SmarterAssist the new AI feature making your Fridge even Smarter. Artificial intelligence (AI) makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. Most AI examples that you hear about today – from chess-playing computers to self-driving cars – rely heavily on deep learning and natural language processing. Using these technologies, computers can be trained to accomplish specific tasks by processing large amounts of data and recognising patterns in the data.

SmarterAssist uses a number of sophisticated artificial intelligence/machine learning-based algorithms to attempt to recognise items in the fridge’s challenging environment. Fridges have variable lighting conditions, and are often packed full with items, some of which obstruct, or reflect off each other. Smarter uses a number of increasingly complex methods to determine if an item is in the fridge or not on behalf of the customer.

In basic terms, the machine learning process uses artificial intelligence to determine whether an item is correct or not. Over time, the algorithms are ‘trained’ – by being told whether their decision to identify an object (or not) was right or wrong, The algorithms are able to learn from their successes or mistakes, and use this to help itself make a better decision the next time around. During this process, examples of images are collected to help the algorithms compared to other items. With millions of food items and millions of fridges, there is a lot of scope for a lot of learning to take place.

How SmarterAssist works?

With the SmarterAssist feature you can now label a food item once and its tracked forever. It’s the stepping stone to enable FridgeCam to become fully automated!

• Select the items in your fridge inventory that you want to track with the latest in AI. FridgeCam will recognise them when they are in view and let you know when you’ve run out. 

• Search & Learn: If your tracked items are not immediately recognised and tracked, the data will then be processed in the cloud via SmarterAssist to track the item, verify and improve its accuracy. 

• Inventory Management: Once your items have been located, SmarterAssist will then automatically update your inventory, shopping list and notify you when it’s up to date based on what’s in your fridge.

• SmarterAssist also automatically updates your shopping list, which you can link to your Amazon fresh or Tesco account, then easily order your weekly shop.

With the help of SmarterAssist FridgeCam will turn your fridge into a smart fridge for a fraction of the cost. Smarters new easy to use app will allow you to know what you have in even when you’re out, knowing what you have in never became so easy. FridgeCam will stop you from having to trawl the aisles for something you might not even need and stop unnecessary trips to the supermarket. It also saves time and “hangry debates” with your nearest and dearest when it comes to deciding what to cook once you get home. FridgeCam will save you a tonne of prep and planning time – which means more time for, well, whatever else you fancy! It’s a small piece of kit which can revolutionise the way you shop, save money and reduce food waste.
