Improving your diet starts with becoming aware of what you eat, and that is a lot harder than it seems. A deep dive into why it’s so difficult to teach a machine to recognise food, and why you would even want to do it.
Guillermo Christen is co-founder and CEO of Logameal, an app that helps people develop and maintain healthier eating habits by making it easy to track what they eat – just by taking a photo of their meals.
Before starting Logameal, he most recently led product and technology at two machine learning startups. TV Genius (acquired in 2011) and Intent HQ (very large scale predictive analytics). Guillermo has consistently been interested in exploring the space where machine intelligence meets engaging product experiences.
