Food Recognition using OpenCV and Python
In this project , we made a food recognition and calorie estimation system that uses the images of the food, given by the user, to recognize food item and then estimates the calorie present in same food item. Food image recognition is one of the promising applications of visual object recognition in computer vision. The system uses image processing and computational intelligence for food item recognition. We trained a large, deep convolutional neural network to classify the 1000 high-resolution images of each category.The Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) oﬀers a technique for many general image classiﬁcation problems. It has been applied in food classiﬁcation and resulted in a high accuracy.CNN is widely used in food recognition and provides better performance than the conventional methods.
