... and it will almost definitely make it safer
"Automated food monitoring will start to become commonplace as well. From making sure everything is cooked properly, to scanning for any contaminants. Plus, with efficient, automated delivery systems, food served in restaurants should be fresher. Restaurants are going to be able to make sure they don't waste any food, and that the food they have is always fresh and safe," Templeton added.
Does this mean robots will someday be able to "taste" food, to see if it's any good?
"Maybe in the far, far future they will be that advanced -- but not anytime soon," Templeton said, confirming that robots can guard our safety for now, but probably not detect a bunk-tasting slice of Buff chick pizza.
