Indian-origin duo develop app to cut bad eating habits

Satchidananda Panda and Shubhroz Gill from the Salk Institute have developed the app that can collect, analyze and interpret patterns of food intake in humans.

“The study is about developing methods and offers some preliminary insight into what and when people eat," said Panda, associate professor in the Salk Institute's regulatory biology laboratory.

The duo have kept the app simple, only requiring users to send pictures of everything they ate or drank, whether it was an entire water bottle or a few bites of a cookie. Each click also captured metadata (such as the location where food was consumed) and recorded a timestamp.
