Dietary Landscape and Big Data

Friday, December 1, 2017 AT 10:00AM-11:00AM CT / 11:00AM-12:00PM ET

Each day the world’s data footprint increases exponentially amassing large and complex collections of data sets. There is great power in the plethora of this data to inform our decisions. Analyzing the diverse and unstructured data in a meaningful way is the key to informing operational decision and policy. Harnessing the power of big data will aid us in understanding and assessing the dietary landscape which is defined as the representation of factors related to the production, access, and consumption of food. Learn about how this exploratory project integrated the emerging fields of dietary landscape and data science to develop case studies for the use of big data and analytics to answer questions regarding the dietary landscape and how to improve health outcomes as a collaborative effort of regulators, manufacturers, and academics.
