This undated photo provided by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) shows Watson, powered by IBM POWER7, is a work-load optimized system that can answer questions posed in natural language over a nearly unlimited range of knowledge.

Watson, IBM's artificial intelligence machine, has published a cookbook, CNNMoney reports.

The Jeopardy!-winning computer, in collaboration with the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), has created a cookbook that is possibly the first co-created by computer algorithms. 

IBM fed Watson a trove of data on existing dishes so it could learn flavor interactions, food chemical compositions, nutritional information, and cultural preferences. Watson then suggested combinations of ingredients, and ICE chefs turned some of those into dishes for the new book.

Set to go on sale April 14, "Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson" features more than 65 recipes. More are possibly on the way.
