Event Title Small food devices – big potentials. Automating assessment & collection of dietary data with ICT
Event Description Measuring and monitoring dietary intake with easy-to-use portable intelligent devices, has gained interest and popularity worldwide. Increased accessibility of these mobile technologies, including smartphones, personal digital assistants and touch pads (ultra-portable computers), has made them more feasible for use by researchers and health care service providers for monitoring health behavior, compliance and effectiveness of nutritional care and support. Mobile technologies can be used in a co-creation mode where patients provide input and actively participate in the co-creation of service, care and best practice. This conference explores novel easy-to-use portable intelligent technologies and features leading scientists across the globe. It demonstrates new combinations of scales, smartphone technologies, near field communication and picture- and voice recognition to estimate food intake and to facilitate meal ordering process in hospitals and nursing home settings where measuring food intake is important. The conference provides insight into the use of novel technologies that can:

•Automate dietary intake assessment and thereby allow for automated estimation of nutritional intake as well as for food waste and environmental impact of food choice

•Co-create nutritional services in institutions for patients and the elderly in health care using portable intelligent devices
