LONDON - May 21, 2020 - PRLog -- Scientists from the University of Essex, developed the "nosh" app in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which totally changed most people's food buying habits – where people are stockpiling groceries to maintain social distancing and reduce the amount of time they have to shop. This meant that households run the risk of wasting more food, especially when they overbuy items with shorter shelf life. The nosh app is capable of reminding the user the expiry date of stocked food, suggests recipes and show buying and food wasting trend to the users so that they can make an informed decision on what food to buy next time. The food buying and wasting trend is evaluated by an in-house AI algorithm developed by the project team.
