A new restaurant in San Francisco employs two robots to prepare gourmet burgers for diners, with each capable of making 120 burgers an hour.

The Creator restaurant's robots grind the meat and shape the burgers, slice and add toppings and condiments to customers' specifications, and precision-grill the meat using sensors.

Controlling the robots is a machine learning algorithm that taps information from 11 thermal sensors in the cooking compartment to ensure each beef patty is cooked to the customer's satisfaction; diners use tablets to order their personalized burger.

Some entrepreneurs exploring culinary applications of artificial intelligence aim to put robotic chefs to work in domestic kitchens. For example, Moley Robotics in the U.K. is teaching robots to master recipes by recording the actions of a human chef with a motion-capture system.
