Seminar description

A large proportion of our collective disease burden comes from unhealthy lifestyles. Even if we increasingly know what a healthy lifestyle looks like, it is still hard for the individual to change behaviors. Peter Vesterberg and his colleagues are developing a new tool that aims to provide more accurate and tailored lifestyle guidelines for individuals, at scale, by using applied machine learning. The tool will continuously be developed in order to include the latest understanding of data driven behaviors and habit formation. The seminar will cover the principles of the solution and the initial findings from an ongoing pilot.
