wine tasting robot

Has anyone read about this?

It is about a new robot that can not only taste and identify wine, but it can reccomend a cheese to go with it, and suggest similar wines it knows you like.
It has a lot of obvious ups and downs, like the ability to identify food and the ingredients in it (positive for those with food allergies) and yet it's memory is limited to knowing only a few dozen wines...what are your thoughts on it? Great new invention or the bane of every sommelier's existance?

  1. It's obvious the robot is a ploy by Robert Parker to live on after leaving the human condition.
