What's in our candy??

We built a deep learning model to read the internet to find out what's in our candy

Built by students from AI Camp with help from our mentors.

It's often not what it seems

We often feed dangerous food to our children and do not know that we are doing so...

Thus we used a deep learning model to learn about the ingredients in our food.

Fortunately, if you're seeking the intersection of indulgence and nutrition, it's already right in front of you. Marry the best parts of hazelnut spread – the hazelnuts and cocoa – with the creaminess of chocolate milk and you hatch hazelnut milk!
