Japan's Kirin taps AI for beer making

Machine learning expected to yield new recipes

A Kirin Brewery plant in Yokohama, Japan.

TOKYO -- Kirin Brewery will employ artificial intelligence to perform beer-making functions usually entrusted to human professionals in a scheme to shorten product development and speed training.

The Kirin Holdings unit is pairing with the Mitsubishi Research Institute to install AI brew test programs as early as this year. The applications will determine the desired flavor, aroma, color and alcohol content, then produce the corresponding recipe.
