The projects main objective is to develop a multi-modal based metric of satiety that is predictive of future energy consumption that surpasses the performance of existing benchmark metrics, and acts as a proof-of-concept for its use in industrial research and development.
Our framework is premised on two central conjectures.
Multimodality: Satiety metrics that exploit the four modalities of blood, brain, behaviour and mind, will be more powerful than existing single-modality metrics.
Dynamics: Existing satiety metrics are weak because they do not extract information from the dynamics of states as they unfold over time. Satiety metrics that explicitly compute dynamics will be more powerful than static measures.
