  3. BBC Radio 4 - Digital Human, Series 9, Taste

    Aleks Krotoski explores whether or not the digital world is changing food culture.

    Food is a universal necessity, human brains light up more for food than any other experience, so it’s little wonder that food culture has exploded online. Social media is festooned with pictures, recipes, cooking videos and we can’t seem to ever get enough.

    But, is the digital world doing more than getting our mouths watering? Could technology be changing the very way we taste?

    In this episode, Aleks Krotoski explores how food trends develop and shape our culture and spread on social media, as well as exploring new tech that may change the way we eat - from 3D printed delights, to Chef Watson who creates recipes in the cloud, and even how we might manipulate our brains to change how we perceive flavour.

  4. On Point: The Programmable World

    All our digital devices are wired up now. Next in line is the world of things.

    Door locks that recognize you and yield at your approach. Machines at the gym that know your Tuesday workout and go straight to it when you walk in. Anything, anywhere with embedded intelligence and connectivity, responding to you and to other things around you. A programmable world of objects, things.

    It may sound like heaven. It may sound like hell. It’s happening.
