The paper uses a novel application of artificial intelligence to explore a real-world problem, that of positing the existence of a new vegetarian restaurant as well as the existence of three, yet-to-be defined mind-sets of prospective patrons of this hypothetical restaurant. The AI is told only that there are three mind-sets of patrons. The AI is instructed to identify the messaging and underlying thoughts of the three mind-sets. The paper shows the ease with which AI can synthesize ideas about food and food service preferences of individuals, using simple requests that can be easily tailored to ‘study’ a topic.
