Five Key Benefits Of Artificial Intelligence (Ai) In Nutrition Research
Jarrod Anderson, Senior Director, Artificial Intelligence, Adm
1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are providing new insights into the role of nutrition in human health.
AI is being used to develop new methods for analyzing dietary data. For example, researchers are using AI to develop “nutritional fingerprinting” techniques to identify the specific nutrients in food and how those nutrients impact human health. This information can be used to create tailored nutrition recommendations for individuals.
AI is also being used to create new digital tools for tracking dietary intake and health outcomes. For example, the FDA has approved several “digital pills” that use sensors to track medication adherence and gastrointestinal function. These devices could eventually be used to track dietary intake and provide real-time feedback on the impact of diet on specific health outcomes.
2. AI is helping to identify previously unknown bioactive compounds and their potential impacts on human health outcomes.
This is a breakthrough for the nutrition industry, as it can help improve the quality of food and dietary supplements available to consumers. It also can help identify new bioactive compounds that may have health benefits.
3. AI enables more precise and personalized dietary recommendations based on an individual’s unique nutritional needs.
In the past, nutrition scientists developed general dietary guidance that was meant to be followed by everyone. However, these one-size-fits-all recommendations often fail to consider the unique nutritional needs of individual people.
AI will be at the forefront of new product development that can provide targeted consumer benefits by facilitating an accelerated understanding of how the human body uses foods and their components
4. AI is accelerating the development of new foods and dietary supplements tailored to meet the specific needs of different population groups.
From specialized nutrition to athletic performance and recovery and beyond, AI is accelerating the development of new foods and dietary supplements tailored to meet consumer needs. As AI can analyze large amounts of data faster than ever before and identify patterns that would be difficult for humans to discern, AI technology enables new products to market more quickly. AI will be at the forefront of new product development that can provide targeted consumer benefits by facilitating an accelerated understanding of how the human body uses foods and their components.
5. AI plays a role in developing novel approaches to improving food security and reducing waste throughout the food supply chain.
AI can play a role in developing novel approaches to improving food security and reducing waste throughout the food supply chain. For example, machine learning can predict demand for certain crops, which can help farmers optimize planting plans to meet specific yield targets. AI can also detect crop diseases early, facilitating mitigation efforts that can contain damage and reduce crop loss.
AI can help reduce food waste by identifying purchasing behavior patterns and assisting businesses to better forecast demand. Reducing food waste is a priority in many industries and reducing food waste across supply chains is increasingly a priority of companies and consumers alike. As consumers increasingly make values-based purchasing decisions, AI will become an important tool to help companies meet these evolving needs.
In conclusion, AI plays a crucial role in developing new foods and supplements better tailored to meet the specific needs of both population groups and individual consumers. The future of AI is bright, with its ability to analyze data at great speed and identify patterns that would be otherwise undetectable by humans. This will allow for the development of more personalized and targeted foods and dietary supplements that can better meet the needs of different population groups. Additionally, AI plays a role in developing novel approaches to improving food security and reducing food waste throughout the food supply chain.
