Project Name: Singapore Restaurant Food Image Annotation

Project Sponsor: Singapore Institute of Clinical Science

Grant Amount: $77,000

Duration: 6 months

Description: To understand the dietary intake, we develop a photo-based dietary tracking application, namely Dietlens. The application may be a promising tool for clinical nutrition research and diabetics self-management. The underlying technology and algorithms for rapid image recognition of food types form the foundation of the subsequent app development. Multiple app variants may eventually be developed using this technology as a basis.  

The photo-based food recognition app intends to be a convenient way of tracking and analyzing food and nutrition intake. The coverage of food types is a critical factor that determines the usability of the app and thus influences the scale of analysis. Variation of the application may be used for either research or consumer use. The present project intends to explore the use of the DietLens application for breadth and ease of use by a general consumer population not recruited primarily based on existing health conditions, personal or professional interest.

At present, the food image recognition capability of DietLens has focused on frequently accessed local Singapore foods (n=357 items). To ascertain the ease of use of DietLens for tracking of typical nutritional habits in an audience group that is not assumed to have professional dietary or medical knowledge, we aim to extend the coverage of Singapore food types recognized by DietLens.
