Quality Inspection of Food and Agricultural Products using Artificial Intelligence
A rising awareness for quality inspection of food and agricultural products has generated a growing effort to develop rapid and non-destructive techniques. Quality detection of food and agricultural products has prime importance in various stages of processing due to the laborious processes and the inability of the system to measure the whole of the food production. The detection of food quality has previously depended on various destructive techniques that require sample destruction and a large amount of postharvest losses. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged with big data technologies and high-performance computation to create new opportunities in the multidisciplinary agri-food domain. This review presents the key concepts of AI comprising an expert system, artificial neural network (ANN), and fuzzy logic. A special focus is laid on the strength of AI applications in determining food quality for producing high and optimum yields. It was demonstrated that ANN provides the best result for modelling and effective in real-time monitoring techniques. The future use of AI for assessing quality inspection is promising which could lead to a real-time as well as rapid evaluation of various food and agricultural products.
