The DataArt Orange initiative spent lots of development efforts for its food recognition R&D project. And finally it feels that the market is ready for the technology.
Last week Google announced at the Rework Deep Learning Summit an artificial intelligence project to calculate the calories in pictures of food you have taken.
According to The Guardian, “the prospective tool called Im2Calories, aims to identify food snapped and work out the calorie content”.
There is not much information about the project and what algorithms are available at the moment, but what is available indicates that Im2Calories will utilize a similar approach used by DataArt’s Computer Vision Competence Centre researchers in their Eat’n’Click project.
The Eat’n’Click app finds the contours of a plate with food on it, analyzes its segments and suggests variants to a user with information about calories pulled from Wolfram Alpha. A detailed description of the project’s stages and research can be found on our blog.
Now that the industry has shown an interest in food recognition, DataArt is happy to see that our R&D team is on the leading edge of technology. The team will continue its research, sharing its impressive accumulated knowledge with the world. Our final goal is to help our partners integrate this technology with their products.
R&D initiative led by a group of experts at DataArt. Our expertise to deliver your ideas.
