Google Maps Now Uses Machine Learning To Find Restaurants’ Best Dishes, Make Suggestions
Google Maps want to help restaurant diners know what to order. The company today is rolling out an update to Google Maps on Android, with iOS to follow, which will highlight the restaurant’s most popular dishes. The feature itself is using machine learning to uncover these dish suggestions based on the restaurants’ reviews and photos.
That is, if diners have praised an item in their review, Google Maps will use that information to determine what to suggest, while also matching the dish to the photos uploaded by customers to create its selection of what’s popular there. Of course, that means restaurants with few reviews, or none at all, won’t benefit from this addition. READ MORE ON: TECH CRUNCH
