PepsiCo is a global leader in food and beverages and has a product portfolio that includes 22 brands. Some of its major brands include Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade, and Frito-Lay. PepsiCo is one company that has realised that adopting artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is a business necessity rather than a competitive advantage.

At the University of the Pacific, one customer-facing application of AI technology is making its way throughout campus. The “Snack-Bot,” as its known, is an AI-powered delivery robot from which students may purchase a variety of healthy snacks, such as sparkling water and healthy potato chips. They can have them delivered to more than 50 sites on campus at no additional cost. The robot’s technology allows it to navigate at any time of day and in any weather, and it has a 20-mile range on a single battery.

Machine learning is helping the Frito-Lay (a PepsiCo subsidiary) manufacturing unit. One project utilises lasers to impact chips, then listens to the sounds they make to determine texture. To automate the quality assessment for Frito-chip Lay’s processing facilities, algorithms process sound and determine snack food’s texture.

We can see how PepsiCo has successfully integrated AI technology into its brands’ DNA. With many businesses still showing signs of AI immaturity, it’s up to the biggest brands to lead the way and show how the technology can be applied. We’ll have to wait and watch how many other companies follow Pepsi’s example.
