Scent can evoke strong feelings and memories

From the scents and scents we use to improving the smell of public spaces, smell and our sense of smell may become the last areas AI is radically changing.

A huge amount of data and super-fast computers are used to identify new trends in the world of scents in order to manufacture products faster than before.

On the other hand, the world of artificial intelligence is developing technology that can diagnose diseases in their early stages through smell, to help us stay healthy and live longer.

Below we show how AI can affect everything from the scents we use to how we diagnose diseases.

Artificial intelligence may one day be able to detect crowded places to ensure a pleasant environment

Rising technology company Aribal analyzes odors to see how they can affect us and what they can tell us about our health.

But smells are hard to track down, and while there are waves of a certain length that characterize light and sound, there is no easy way to quantitatively measure smells.

Instead, the French company uses the scents of proteins placed on silicon wafers to identify the molecules they smell, avoiding gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and carbon monoxide that our senses don’t pick up through the nose.

We need AI since we can’t describe the smell, says CEO Sam Gilume. He adds, “What we can do is teach computers the way ‘This is cheese, this is strawberry…’ and so on.”

Technology can play a role in monitoring where we spend time to make sure the environment is right, something we’ve started paying more attention to since the pandemic.

One more thing: We’ve known for a while that diseases can be detected by smell, and last year Helsinki Airport conducted an experiment to identify travelers with Covid using dogs.

This could lead to the manufacture of products that monitor our health on a daily basis for early signs of disease.

“Maybe when I brush my teeth, there will be a sensor in my brush that can monitor my health, and it will be able to tell you I see the effects of diabetes, I can feel the signs of cancer,” Guilome says.

Detecting and treating diseases early, before they cause serious symptoms, will greatly help us in dealing with the disease effectively.

Guilumi believes that smart gadgets that rely on artificial intelligence, such as a toothbrush that diagnose diseases, are on their way to us.

The question is not whether we will have those tools, but the issue of when.

Perfumers are using artificial intelligence to speed up scent design

Artificial intelligence is used to design new scents, too.

“I’ve been addicted to perfume since the age of four, which is embarrassingly early,” says Maria Nurislamova. “I was stealing my mom’s perfume and she knew it.”

This early attachment to perfume prompted Norispalmova to co-found Centbird, an American up-and-coming company that sends out different samples of perfume every month to subscribers.

In addition to perfume, it is related to technology as well.

When the company decided to launch its fragrance collection, it used artificial intelligence to analyze the data of 300,000 subscribers.

The problem, says Norislamova, was that participants of one sex liked a scent but members of the opposite sex only tolerated it.

“It is difficult to reach a state of gender neutrality, but research has identified 12 scents that both genders like,” she explains. These scents were used for the “Confessions of a Rebel” collection, which constitutes one of the best-selling fragrances.

“I consider it a success,” says Nurislamova, “because the perfumes of Confessions of a Rebel are not as well known as Gucci and Versace, for example, but they achieved an impressive success. I attribute this to our use of artificial intelligence.”

Centbread is using research to develop additional fragrances and scents, and two collections have been added this year.

But this company isn’t the only one using artificial intelligence to change the way we smell.

Scents & Tastes International is also using AI to make perfumes but they’re digging deeper into how scents affect us.

We won’t find the name of the multinational company in stores, as it works behind the scenes to develop scents in collaboration with major brands such as Armani, Calvin Klein and Givenchy.

The aforementioned company has more than a century of experience in the perfume industry, but when you use 60 scents that you choose out of 2,000, artificial intelligence plays a key role.

AI is a tool like using Google Maps to help a perfumer follow a complex path so he can focus on creating and feeling, says Valaire Claude, a director at the company.

The work of the International Smells and Tastes Company goes beyond sweet perfumes to the smells that we encounter in our daily lives, such as the smells of washing powders, soaps and bathroom shampoos, and people’s requirements have varied during the Covid crisis.

Claude says the requirements have changed from “clean and fresh” to care and protection. They want to feel comfortable and taken care of.

The company focuses on the effect of scents on people’s moods and feelings.

The Health Sciences program aims to use artificial intelligence to create pleasant and relaxing scents.
