A Design of a Distributed Computing Problem Solving Environment for Dietary Data Analysis
Choi, Jieun; Ahn, Younsun; Kim, Yoonhee;
Recently, wellness has become an issue related to improvements in personal health and quality of life. Data that are accumulated daily, such as meals and momentum records, in addition to body measurement information such as body weight, BMI and blood pressure have been used to analyze the personal health data of an individual. Therefore, it has become possible to prevent potential disease and to analyze dietary or exercise patterns. In terms of food and nutrition, analyses are performed to evaluate the health status of an individual using dietary data. However, it is very difficult to process the large amount of dietary data. An analysis of dietary data includes four steps, and each step contains a series of iterative tasks that are executed over a long time. This paper proposes a problem solving environment that automates dietary data analysis, and the proposed framework increases the speed with which an experiment can be conducted.
