Role within miGut-Health
The AI-assisted MyFoodRepo app will be provided to the miGUT-Health study participants via select collaborators, where food habits will be captured through food pictures and barcode scans. The data will be assessed with AI image recognition capabilities and verified by human annotators, thus providing continuous high-resolution, timestamped diet data for one week every three months during the intervention as well as one week during the follow up period.
