Google is awesome, Google is working on an app that uses artificial intelligence to tell you how many calories are in the photo, according to Popular Science
It's called Im2Calories, and in a demo given by Google research scientist Kevin Murphy last week, it was able to tell you how many calories were on an eggs, toast, and bacon breakfast plate.
This Im2Calories app doesn't require a high-resolution photo or the user to do anything fancy. It just looks, and tells you how healthy (or not) the food is, but according to the report. As a research project, the Im2Calories app may never see the light of day for the average user — though Google has gotten a patent on the technology.
Instead of makes our health avoid to junk food this app It's more than enough to make you think twice about what you're eating. But speaking at last week's Rework Deephttps://www.re-work.co/events/deep-learning-boston-2015"> Learning Summit in Boston, Murphy says that the goal isn't for Google to shame you for what you eat, but instead to help users keep better track and more easily keep a food diary. And the end-game here is a lot more Google-y than just keeping track of public health.
