Project

Whats on the plate - Machine learning and object recognition as tools in dietary registrations

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Aim

The aim of this project is to develop a method that can automatically classify and quantify the nutrient content of the food presented on a plate. The method will use a machine learning algorithm trained on the image data (lunch meals from school children) with known nutrient content.

Background

Manual dietary registration is a time consuming process, for both participants and researchers. Today we are able to collect enormous amounts of image data in dietary intake, however the translation of the photographs into nutrient contents is lacking behind. Moving beyond manual estimation of nutrient content and weights will be a great step towards improved handling of large amounts of dietary data. The project has high relevance within public health as well as for researchers in the field of nutrition and will form the basis for innovative next generation dietary registrations.

Data

Photographs have previously been collected by nutrition researchers at DTU FOOD, and the nutrient content has been manually estimated. This data will be used to train the model and ultimately the model will recognize foods of unknown nutrient content.

Duration

The project is available for starting as soon as possible. There may be possibilities to continue the work as a student assistant.
