The (A.I) Artificial Intelligence Diet
The A.I. Diet is an algorithm that tells you how to eat to live a longer and healthier life. As you know, an algorithm is a process or set of rules followed by a computer used in calculations or problem-solving, so the A.I diet is all based on science.
Cardiologist, Dr Eric Topol participated in a 2-week experiment using a smartphone app tracking: all consumption (food, drink and medication), sleep and exercise. A sensor monitoring blood-glucose levels was added and a stool sample was sent in for an assessment of his gut microbiome. His data was amassed with similar input from 1000+ others and analysed by AI to create a personalised diet algorithm.
The final verdict showed unexpected results: In the sweets category: Cheesecake was given an A grade, but whole-wheat fig bars were given a C grade. In fruits: Strawberries were an A+ for him, but grapefruit a C. For legumes: Mixed nuts were an A+, but veggie burgers a C.
