Expanding the World of Taste with Technology

Riverness will sponsor the event.The 8th Main Meeting of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields(March 8-9, 2019 (Friday and Saturday)), within the session "The World of Taste Enhanced by Technology" (session partner: Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd.) by experts in ultra-sensitive odor sensors, bodily extension, and molecular mechanisms of cooking phenomena.)will be held.

The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019


Taste is not just a taste level, such as sweet or bitter, but a higher sense that is created by various factors such as smell, sight, touch, hearing, physical condition, and even past experiences. Through the use of taste and smell sensors and VR, our understanding of deliciousness has made great progress at the research level. In this session, we will discuss what good taste is, with researchers who are working on cutting-edge research that provides clues to understanding the relationship between the five senses and good taste. We will also discuss how the latest findings and technologies will lead to new cooking methods, food culture, and other aspects of the food world in the future.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
