About the talk
During my time in medical school, I developed a passion for proactive healthcare. Recent advances in data mining/data liquidation, wearable devices, machine learning, and behavior science offer new and exciting opportunities to alter the health trajectory of patients-- often before they have any disease burden at all. Each of my research projects revolve around a central thesis: We already have the core technologies and data to prevent people from getting sick, and the scientific community has a shared responsibility to implement effective, validated models to improve lives. Outside of research, I'm an avid podcastee (Snacks Daily for life), home technology enthusiast, and software hobbyist. My most time-consuming hobby is collecting objective metrics about my life through software and forecasting models to alter my own behavior (there are at least dozens of us who do this). I also love making terrible puns, and starting new books that I know I'll never finish.View the profile

Hi, my name is Joshua D'Arcy. I'm going to talk to you about a process that we developed to Duke University that we tallest magic magician nutrition is the idea that we can treat nutrition and as a result, Is a process that tracks in outpatient participants dietary intake. It's usually done in the form of written diary which requires a significant investment by the patient and physician who reads and transcribe it. It's a big ask for patient compliance and an even bigger ass for healthcare
stuff. Listen to this problem with you didn't have the data using Mobile assistance, roughly 80% of people and the United States on a smartphone with access to a Mobile Assistant Weebly transcription, using these mobile system lowered the barrier to date. Same thing and similar names for even a radically different things without this made for a really interesting problem and so our solution was to implement a word to back bottle that smes nutrition. Our database based on the closest semantic neighbor of which we know about you,
Here's how it works. You can simply say, hey, Mobile Assistant. I'm eating a serving of apple cobbler within earshot of listening device. I have personally never heard of apple cobbler before. So are online for the nearest beach. Make this Food Lion as simple as OK Google, I'm eating a caesar salad. Nutrition bar. You can find more thorough demonstrations, that are public GitHub repo, including instructions on how to build your own database and connect your
favor Mobile Assistant. And please take a chance to visit that repo. I we would love your feedback as we stand on the process to make it available for everyone to use. So please feel free to tweet us at Big Ideas and thank you so much for your time.
