Samsung and Nestlé have announced their intention to utilise the power of IoT and nutritional science to explore healthy living ever further.
The collaboration will combine Internet of Things technology, scientifically validated bio sensors, advanced multi-modal technology, and comprehensive nutritional approach to allow fresh awareness regarding health and wellbeing. The aim is to empower people to manage their own health better, by providing the best possible information about nutrition, lifestyle, and fitnes, combining Samsung's ARTIK IoT platform and Nestlé's expertise in biomedical science.
Stefan Catsicas, Nestlé Chief Technology Officer, said: “We are delighted to enter this collaboration with a global leader in the field of sensor technologies. It will advance our Nutrition, Health and Wellness strategy, to support people who want to live a healthier lifestyle.”
“We’re excited about the breakthroughs this collaboration will bring,” added Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. “Today, we live in an era of smarter living brought about by the convergence of technology and life science. It’s an era where the data from smart sensors and devices in our daily life such as mobile phones, wearables, and smart refrigerators can help us to understand our nutrition and activity and to guide us towards a healthier lifestyle."
More details about the platform are expected when the first pilots begin in early 2017.
