What it does
Gives you notifications about food expiration dates and sends you recipe recommendations based on the food you have :D And it does all of it without any work from you! Nobody will ever spend their evening logging in every single item they buy from the store, this is why we created a completely automated process that uses Microsoft Cognitive Services for Optical Character Recognition to automatically log in the expiration dates of the food you buy and uses a specifically trained Machine Learning algorithm to recognize the items. It also gives you recipes suggestions based on the items you have in your pantry so that you never run out of ideas!
