Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Diet App: Utilize MealSynth to analyze food images for meal planning, portion control, and dietary restriction applications. Users could simply take photos of their meals, and the app could provide nutritional information based on the identified ingredients.

  2. Grocery Shopping: Implement the model in a mobile app that suggests needed ingredients for certain meals. Users can input a picture of their desired meal and the app gives them a list of ingredients to buy at the grocery store.

  3. Cooking Tutorials: Create an interactive cooking tutorial application that uses MealSynth to guess the ingredients in photos of different steps of cooking meals. Users could compare their work-in-progress to the reference picture and even get real-time advice.

  4. Restaurants and Cafes: Use the model to develop a digital interactive menu in restaurants. When customers take a photo of the displayed food image, the model identifies the ingredients and explains them to the customers. It could also provide suggestions for similar dishes based on the identified ingredients.

  5. Health and Fitness Apps: Integrate the model into fitness apps aimed at tracking the user's calorie and/or ingredient intake. With a food photo, the model could provide a fairly accurate estimate of consumed calories and nutrients.
