CHICAGO, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate its 95-year legacy of making high performance kitchen essentials beloved by both home and professional cooks, the iconic KitchenAid brand will debut an interactive digital culinary timeline at this year's International Home + Housewares Show. Those visiting the KitchenAid booth at the show will be the first to experience the timeline on a 55-inch LED commercial touch screen, according to Beth Robinson, senior brand experience manager for KitchenAid.
"We wanted to celebrate the brand's heritage in the most engaging and experiential way possible," notes Beth Robinson senior brand experience manager for KitchenAid. "Our goal was to capture compelling moments in time that reflect the most significant events and trends of the day."
Created with renowned food historian Andrew Smith, the timeline presents key milestones covering a century of food related history, from the earliest radio cooking shows to the chefs, restaurants, events and cookbooks that have shaped cooking and eating around the world. With the swipe of a finger, users can scroll through the decades in two or three dimensions and tap on specific years to see images and brief descriptions of important dates in culinary and KitchenAid history.
"Given the broad range of fascinating topics to choose from within the last hundred years, we had an abundance of material to work with," notes Andrew Smith. "Perhaps most fascinating is food history's fast acceleration over the past two decades towards today's food, cooking show and chef-obsessed culture."
After making its debut at the Housewares show, the timeline will be shared with a wider audience at KitchenAid sponsored food and wine events, as well as on its website and social media channels. Robinson notes that the timeline is a work in progress that will evolve with additional content, including video, as the brand gets closer to its centennial celebration.
Since the introduction of its legendary stand mixer in 1919 and first dishwasher in 1949, KitchenAid has built on the legacy of these icons to create a complete line of products designed for cooks. Today, the KitchenAid brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars. Cook for the Cure®, the brand's partnership with Susan G. Komen®, is now in its 13th year and has raised over $9 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.

* Based on a 2012 survey, KitchenAid was found to be the home kitchen appliance brand chosen most often by members of the International Association of Culinary Professionals.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
