We are excited to announce that using Asken Diet to log your meals just got even easier! Our team has partnered with the Sony Network Communications team to build a food recognition system that analyzes users' photos to identify the food (or packaged item) and associated nutritional data. The food analysis system (currently in beta) is capable of identifying multiple items in a single photo.
Taking photos of you food is no longer for simply posting on social media, it is now the quickest way to analyze you meal's nutritional information, allowing Asken Diet users the fastest way to log and monitor their diet.
Both Asken Diet and the team from Sony are committed to continually improving the database to further improve the accuracy of the food analysis. And as users contribute more images, the machine learning behind the meal analysis system will improve as well.
The food recognition and automatic analysis is the newest (and fastest) way users can log their entire meal. Users can also use the integrated bar code scanning function to scan packages or simply typing in the food, restaurant item or packaged food to log and track their meals.
Note: Photo analysis system is currently only available for Android. iOS version is coming in a future update.
