Watson has done a lot of amazing things already. From handing us humans our ass, to eating lots of medical data to make sense of it, to now this - cooking.

Watson is taking a scientific approach to eating. The supercomputer can read up to 20,000 recipes and their ingredients before it takes up the job as chef.

James Briscione, instructor of the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhantan did the actual cooking, but was challenged by Watson's choice to not use any butter. Turns out, Watson is a pretty good cook too.

But we don't have to worry. Watson won't be replacing chefs anytime soon. At least, not until they create that Star Trek replicator device.
