1. A system comprising:
one or more servers;
a plurality of automated food production systems, residing at different locations, controlled by a cloud based management system executing on at least one server of the one or more servers, the automated food production systems comprising at least one a robotic arm assembly and a plurality of software controlled hardware components coupled to the at least one server for performing food preparation tasks, wherein the automated food production systems are peripherals of the cloud based management system independently configured by the cloud based management system to produce different food items based on different recipes, wherein the recipes are stored in the cloud based management system and not stored in the automated food production systems; and
a machine learning algorithm, executing on at least one server of the one or more servers, the machine learning algorithm accessing a set of data for one or more users of the plurality of automated food production systems and generating, for particular users, recipe data,
wherein, in response to a request from a user received in the cloud based management system, the cloud based management system translates the recipe data into instructions executable by particular software controlled hardware components in at least one automated food production system to produce a food item.
