Our team believes that today, Alexa represents a paradigm shift as the newest, most powerful form of user interaction. While previous generations featured typing and touching to communicate with computers, voice is a fantastic new medium that gives users much more flexibility while making computers more serviceable and convenient for us.
What it does
Nutrition Tracker helps individuals keep track of your personal health goals while answering any health related questions you might have. You can ask Nutrition Tracker how many calories are in different foods, and you can also record the amount of calories you've eaten everyday by adding meals to Nutrition Tracker's queue of past meals that you've eaten. You can also ask Nutrition Tracker for meal recommendations or advice for dealing with different illnesses.

What's next for Nutrition Tracker
We hope to create user login and the ability to make accounts for Nutrition Tracker. We would also like to incorporate a companion iOS application that allows you to keep track of your nutrition habits while providing you in-app recommendations in case one does not have access to Alexa. We also want to diversity Alexa's abilities so that it includes different aspects of health such as fitness, meal recommendations, and medical information.
