Chef Watson is actually just Watson. An AI (artificial intelligence) tool built by IBM, he’s known in the tech world but not at all for all of us regular people. That’s what IBM wants to change. They want to make Chef Watson known to a larger audience.

How do you do that in 2017? Simple, create a bunch of recipe videos and post them on social media. Add a little bit of art and you’re good to go.

The idea is that AI Chef Watson will create the recipes but he can only use four main ingredients. Each one has to start with the letter E, A, T or S. That spells Eats. To make that even clearer and to make this work on social media IBM took in a bunch of artists and made them make the letters E,A,T,S out of food. This sounds super familiar to a project have been working on for some time here. Check it out here.
