Project SmartKitchen/ Experiment 6: Upstream Concierge

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Status: In Progress

Question Being Answered:

  • Can an upstream integration with a grocery store or delivery service provide sufficient information to create a service that 1) is useful to people and 2) has differentiator qualities


  • If we provide an upstream integration service that provides recently purchased inventory and suggests recipes using the purchased inventory, then it will be useful to people beyond what services already exist.

Experiment Overview:

  • Use a concierge service to enter shopping purchases of users using existing bot and BigOven
