Food Recognition

Established: January 25, 2016

We study the problem of food image recognition via deep learning techniques. Our goal is to develop a robust service to recognize thousands of popular Asia and Western food. Several prototypes have been developed to support diverse applications. The techniques have been shipped to Bing local search and XiaoIce. We are also developing a prototype called Im2Calories, to automatically calculate the calories and conduct nutrition analysis for a dish image.
