News: The app combines Nutrino’s insights platform with Watson’s natural language capabilities.
Nutrino and IBM have launched a new app, which provides expectant moms with real-time, science-based nutritional insights.
The Nutrino App Powered by Watson gives personalised meal recommendations and round-the-clock nutritional support by combining Nutrino’s insights platform with Watson’s natural language capabilities.
It is available for download from the Apple App Store and will be featured on Android later.
Women should initially input their data into the app, including pregnancy status, individual health goals, dietary needs, food preferences, and eating habits.
They can then choose from a list of common pregnancy-specific nutrition questions.
Nutrino co-founder and chief science officer Yaron Hadad said: "The Nutrino App Powered by Watson helps women navigate through a trove of available nutrition information and offers recommendations responsive to a women’s changing needs throughout her pregnancy."
IBM Watson Health chief health officer Kyu Rhee said: "For women interested in nutrition during pregnancy, the Nutrino App Powered by Watson is a unique resource to help them make informed decisions based on available peer-reviewed evidence.
"The Nutrino App has the potential to help a woman get the precise nutrition information she seeks, when she needs it."
