How can AI for super human chefs help you?


You can't predict anything perfectly, however together with our Eaternity forecast you can reduce prediction errors from 31 to 23 menus.
The typical prediction error for most cases is between 18 and 23. Whereas for humans, the comparison is between 18 and 37.

That's 13 per 100 menus less misplanning at every 5th restaurant.

how it works

Artificial Neural Networks.

Through sophisticated modeling of purchase behaviors and the personal choices preferences of your guests, we teach a digital brain on historic recipe and sales data that are statistically super human.
The network is better in predicting your ingredient purchases and menu selection for the coming days, than a human does.
Neural networks are a fascinating piece of software technology, that is modeled after the human brain. You feed it with historic information of the problem together with the solution. And task it to be able to find the solution on its own, when presented with new problems of the same kind.
For example we provide many recipes as well as how popular they were in the restaurant. After the training the network is able to predict the popularity of recipes that it did not know before.
The challenge in designing a neural network is to classify the right problems to solve. And tune the networks parameters precisely so that this generalization works well.
The artificial neural network is capable to remember millions of menus and their characteristic properties to calculate on the fly

We do understand that it might not be the best fit for every restaurant right now. Hence we provide you some sneak peak into what we would love to collaborate with you on, to make the algorithm even better.
Food waste management integration - Fully automated food waste measurements using AI image recognition. Capture your food waste seamlessly, objectively and completely to reduce it based on the insights gained. In combination with prediction, this results in the unique opportunity to close the food loop for the first time, i.e. both systems balance each other and allow to reduce losses to the absolute minimum.
Integration with your sales data directly from the cash register system.
Recipe Suggestions
You will get insights what menu has the best ratio of margin and sales. Also we will be able to recommend, what ingredient will work best to improve the recipes performance.
Optimisation towards margins
Weighting the profit margins(purchase vs. selling price)
Measurement of the costs
Costs of loss of good throughusage of pricing data (e.g. of delivery menus or sold menus): helps you figure out how much money is lost through food-waste.
Event-Feedback interactions
You can enter manually information on holidays, events, etc.
You can manually mark sold out menus. This helps the algorithm to learn.

Setup Requirements
Proper collection of actual sales numbers: at best directly through connecting your Point of Sales system with your Food Management System. But also possible through manual registration.
A team, that is willing to work alongside with the algorithm.
(Optional) Historic planning and sales data to evaluate the performance of the algorithm before you start using it.
