Artificial Intelligence and Dietetics: How AI Is Bringing Nutrition To New Heights
Current technologies are already being created to seamlessly collect individual data, perform real-time analyses, and produce personalized evidence-based nutrition recommendations. These evolutions will consider one’s genetics, environment, microbiome, and lifestyle choices along with their dietary choices and health outcomes to fuel our understanding of personalized nutrition. Tech has the capacity to integrate data from billions of people all over the world.
Machine Learning and Big Data together will provide cutting-edge insights and propel the future of nutrition research. Our understanding of nutrition’s impact on health will be supported through real-time, big data driven insights which will forever guide our clinical trials and elevate our ability to use food as medicine. This will ignite, support, and validate efforts to improve and sustain the health of communities both near and far.
Artificial intelligence has the power to revolutionize the field of dietetics, improving outcomes for patients, providers, and the world at large. This session will touch on how artificial intelligence and machine learning are currently being used, its impact on nutrition research, and steps you can take to incorporate technologies and advancements to elevate your practice.
