Analytical Flavor Systems sponsors “Innovations in Food Europe, 2019”

We are pleased to announce that Analytical Flavor Systems is sponsoring Innovations in Food Europe taking place on 23rd & 24th of October in London, UK.

Gastrophagh Al is a specialized artificial intelligence platform for the F&B industry that understands what consumers taste. Analytical Flavor Systems is the company behind Gastrograph AI, based in New York City. Gastrograph AI collects and models human sensory perceptions for flavor, aroma, and texture, to predict human preferences for food and beverage products. The platform makes predictions that optimize every step in a food or beverage product’s life cycle – from conception to consumption.

Do not miss out on the presentation by Jason Cohen, Co-Founder & CEO, of Analytical Flavor Systems.
Jason’s presentation title is “Successful New Products Through AI” and it will focus on:

  • Gastrograph AI is solving the new hardest problem in CPG
  • An ever-learning platform for predicting human sensory perception of flavor, aroma and texture to predict consumer preference of food and beverage products
  • Gastrograph AI is used to develop market winning new products targeted at specific consumer demographics, meeting their changing preferences

Before starting Analytical Flavor Systems, Jason was the Founder and Executive Director of the Tea Institute at Penn State, an interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to the study and preservation of tea, tea ceremony, and tea culture. In addition to overseeing the research of 30+ students in over 5 fields of study, Jason did his original research in Sensory Science and Machine Learning, and founded Analytical Flavor Systems after 4 years of research.
