Built with the goal to revolutionize the role of nutrition in medical research and public health, the MyFoodRepo platform makes food tracking very easy, thanks to an AI-assisted mobile app and an annotation back-end that helps cohorts manage the food tracking of their patients. We’ve built a flexible infrastructure for our own research cohort at www.foodandyou.ch, and are now opening it to other cohorts.
