APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ON NUTRITION ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
*Dr. Kavita Sudersanadas
Artificial Intelligence can be applied in multidisciplinary fields, including patient service and care. It enables precise and personalized medical nutrition care by assessing food and nutrient intake, nutritional evaluation. The application of AI for the provision of food services to hospitalized patients is of immense scope. This review details the various ways through which AI can be applied for the nutrition assessment. Even though commercial AI-based nutritional assessment systems are available, many do not evaluate the nutrient intake, and the data available through them were not validated. FatSecret is a commercially available AI-based food and nutrient assessment system that can evaluate the food's calorie content. Also, the major challenge posed by such systems is the availability of locally appropriate data sets. Hence further research and validation are essential in this field.
