TV IN-DEPTH: News24 Lifestyle Editor Herman Eloff sits down with Barry Dubovsky, COO at MultiChoice Connected Video, to talk about the recipe to success when using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to cook up something consumers will love the taste of.

Imagine a buffet set out the length of a dining hall. The large white table stretched from one side of the room to the other. It's packed with food everywhere it can fit, from fresh breakfast croissants to scrambled eggs, vegan sausages, lunch sandwiches, fruit, soups, sauces, vegetables, meats, plates of pasta, loaves of bread, cakes, tarts, and perfectly made ganache centred chocolate truffles. When you stand at the one end of the table, it's impossible to see what's waiting on the other.

You've got your small little plate, and it's time to choose what you want. But where do you start? How do you know what you'll like? Can you taste some of it first? What if there's something on the table you didn't know about?
