Purpose and Scope

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a powerful tool that is increasingly being used in the food science and nutrition field to develop innovative solutions that can improve the quality, safety, and sustainability of our food systems.

AI algorithms can be used to analyze food samples and detect contaminants, such as bacteria or foreign objects, which can improve food safety and prevent foodborne illnesses. AI can also be used to monitor the quality of food products during processing and storage, ensuring that they meet industry standards.

AI can be used to develop new food formulations that meet specific nutritional or functional requirements. By analyzing the chemical composition of different food ingredients, AI algorithms can identify the optimal combination of ingredients to create a product with desired properties.

AI can help reduce food waste by predicting food demand and optimizing supply chain logistics to minimize waste. AI algorithms can also be used to identify food products that are at risk of spoiling, enabling retailers to take action before the products go to waste.

AI can be used to develop personalized nutrition plans that take into account an individual’s unique health profile, lifestyle, and dietary preferences. By analyzing data on an individual’s genetics, microbiome, and other health markers, AI can provide personalized recommendations on what to eat and how much to eat.

AI can be used to develop smart kitchen appliances, such as ovens or refrigerators, that can monitor food inventory, suggest recipes based on ingredients on hand, and adjust cooking times and temperatures based on user preferences.

In addition to these applications, AI can also be used to model and simulate food systems, enabling researchers to test the impact of different interventions on food production, distribution, and consumption. This can help identify strategies to improve food security, reduce environmental impact, and promote sustainable food systems.

Overall, AI has the potential to revolutionize the food science and nutrition field, enabling us to develop more innovative and sustainable food solutions that meet the needs of a growing population.

Overall, AI has the potential to revolutionize many industries by enabling us to automate tasks, make more accurate predictions, and develop intelligent systems that can learn and adapt over time. As AI technology continues to advance, we can expect to see even more applications of AI in various fields in the future. The purpose of this workshop is to bring international researchers who are interested in artificial intelligence applications and modelling in food science and nutrition field and to talk about its future.
