About the research
Making fries is something we Belgians are already very good at that. Yet it can be even better thanks to technology, says Wout Vierbergen (ILVO - KU Leuven). He uses hyperspectral cameras and artificial intelligence to detect black spots under the peel of a potato. In this way, he wants to help fry producers detect blistered potatoes so that they are left with only the finest specimens to make our fries.
