The personal touch seems to be imperative in cooking. From childhood we learn by watching and imitating, trying for ourselves. But with advances in robotics, could a machine learn to cook by watching you?
The answer, in my opinion, is “probably yes”. The real question is just how far could it go. Roboticists have made a start (http://www.popsci.com/robot-can-make-you-dinner?HWLhLPmSFk523qEt.01) but, as any foodie who reads their blurb will see, they need some serious foodie input to make further progress.
