    Towards estimation of cooking complexity

    free-text annotations in the kitchen environment


    Tonkin, EL, Bykowska, AS, Berg, H & Craddock, IJ, 2019, ‘Towards estimation of cooking complexity: free-text annotations in the kitchen environment’. in: Proceedings of the 6th international Workshop on Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction. Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)


    Activity and decision-making around nutrition are important aspects of naturalistic human behaviour. This paper describes a participant-centric free-text annotation process intended to facilitate activity recognition in the kitchen environment. The resulting annotations are characterised. Data from the study are reviewed to establish the extent to which this annotation dataset and the sensor data it accompanies, including environmental, current and water usage, support estimation of meal complexity. Three metrics of meal complexity are identified. Finally, planned future work in this area is discussed.
