Food and drink processing is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK, but faces significant challenges around safety, waste, and energy use. AI offers a transformative solution, and Deep learning (DL) research by the Mlearn Research Group in the School of Computer Science (SoCS) has innovated AI-enabled efficient and safe food chains in energy management and food labeling. In collaboration with sector partners, Mlearn’s DL research has 1) optimised energy consumption across a large network of retail refrigeration systems, with financial benefits and reduced pressure on the National Grid, and 2) ensured safety of packaged food by enabling 100% inspection of the use-by date for consumption along the food production line.
