We realize that we really want to know the food we eat is healthy or not.
What it does
Take a picture of the food, and the app will determine what it is and returns the nutrition value and other information.
How we built it
Android as our front end. Node.js and restify as our backend instance running on Microsoft Azure virtual machines.
Challenges we ran into
Reliability of the machine learning techniques.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The app is able to return the rough probability of what the food may be.
What we learned
It's very difficult to get accurate information of a picture taken in real life vs on the internet.
What's next for FoodWatch
Be able to share with others what the user eats and status.
