The human sense of smell is one of our most sensitive senses and a powerful warning system for potentially dangerous situations such as rotten food or a gas leak. However, detecting references to smell and representing these in a machine interpretable format is as yet an under-researched topic in computer vision, natural language processing and the semantic web.

In challenging times, ensuring financial integrity and fairer distribution of services by reducing disparities are among the top priorities for social and health-care systems globally.

Computationally, the basic capability here has to do with Object Recognition – as a minimum, a visually intelligent robot needs to be able to recognise the content of its observations.
