Precision Health, Nutrition & Behaviour Lab is a collaboration between Radboud University, OnePlanet Research Center, Radboudumc, Wageningen University & Research and nine industry partners. This lab focuses on the development of AI solutions for encouragement of healthy behaviour in humans, with a specific focus on precision health and nutrition.
Nine PhD students and three postdocs work among other things on the development of new sensors, algorithms, chatbots and apps that provide personalized support in the field of health and (eating) behaviour.
The first aim of the lab is to increase the richness and quality of health, dietary and behavioural data by monitoring health using various or novel sensors. The second aim is to develop smart AI algorithms and machine learning techniques to extract more relevant outcomes and knowledge from these data. The final aim is to improve the personalized lifestyle feedback generated from these measurement to coach in the direction of healthier behaviour.
The Lab envisions to develop tailored and innovative AI algorithms and tools that cope with increased data yield and facilitate knowledge extraction, allowing immediate personalized feedback to coach in the direction of healthier behaviour. By contributing to overall healthier behaviour of the population, the lab can potentially increase the quality of life of people. This will results in lower expected incidence rates of disease and therefore also lower the burden on the healthcare system.
