Keynote presentation : Prof. Marcel Salathé
Marcel Salathé is a professor of life science and computer science at EPFL, where he heads the Digital Epidemiology Lab. He is the Academic Director of the EPFL Extension School. He is a co-founder of multiple startups, and advises companies and governments on digital technologies.
Digital cohorts - i.e. cohorts where most data is transferred digitally through sensors, mobile apps, and web applications - are gaining ground. I’ll present our experiences from the Food & You cohort (www.foodandyou.ch), a personalized nutrition cohort in Switzerland, and discuss the potential, and the challenges encountered. The Food & You cohort required us to build substantial digital food infrastructure, including the AI-based food tracking app “MyFoodRepo", and the open food database “Open Food Repo”. I’ll give a short overview over all of these projects, with a focus on the challenges of food recognition using machine learning and crowdsourcing.
