AI in dietary advise

Healthy diet advice, desired for residents of nursing homes for example, begins by monitoring a person’s food intake. But keeping track of this is a demanding and time-consuming job for care personnel. AI can help measuring food intake, including eating behaviour, food type preferences, and recognize nutrimental intake.

We will improve an already developed automated dietary assessment technique (the mEETr) to immediately analyse and validate data streams, while integrating ELSA aspects. This information will help nutritionists, medical doctors, and care staff provide fitting care on individual basis.

Among others, the following ELSA challenges appear: 

  • Access of information about a patient’s future health and morbidity
  • Privacy of both participants and bystanders
  • Social stigma’s and or praise associated with food consumption.
