A team at the University of Tokyo is using cameraphone technology to take note of what we eat…

“The researchers have developed image-recognition software that can tell meat and potatoes from fish and rice and can ignore any non-food items in an image, the point being to establish what food groups are present in a meal merely by analysing a photo of it.
