Dealing with Malnutrition: A Meal Planning System for Elderly
2006 (English)In: AAAI Spring Symposium on Argumentation for Consumers of Health Care,2006, Menlo Park, CA, USA: AAAI Press , 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
Malnutrition is a
serious problem among people of old age. To overcome malnutrition,
a change of food consumption behaviour is necessary, which needs to
be based on specialist advice from health-care professionals.
Changing food-related behaviour, however, is known to be difficult.
Our approach to this problem is to provide an intelligent meal
planning system to be used by the elderly person in his or her
home. The system provides recommendations of suitable food recipes,
taking into account the advice of the care givers (e.g. in terms of
dietary restrictions, suitable energy and fat levels, etc). We
describe the requirements, design, algorithms, and user interface
of the system, and discuss ongoing and future work.
