Science Symposium on Smart Eating – Harnessing Innovative Approaches & New Technologies for Health and Sustainability

Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
8:30 am – 6:00 pm


Innovation and new technologies including artificial intelligence, digitalization, genomics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are advancing our knowledge, connectivity and the web of communication. These technologies can be harnessed for better understanding of nutritional status, food intake and physical activity patterns.

With greater access to new technologies and information, consumers are increasingly aware of health-related aspects of food and diet. This has also enabled consumers to take initiatives, make smarter choices, and adopt more health-focused food consumption patterns. On the other hand, the convergence of innovation, conflicting information and the abundance of food choices have led to increased concerns on overall health and well-being, as well as environmental impact and sustainability.

Join us at this science symposium, where we explore the definition of smart eating and sustainability. The meeting will also discuss how technologies have revolutionized the agri-food industry and can be further harnessed to improve our populations’ health and nutritional well-being.


This 1-day symposium aims to:

  • Understand and explore the definition of smart eating
  • Discuss the opportunities and challenges in the use of technology in smart eating
  • Discuss how new technologies can be applied to enhance sustainable food production and reduce food waste
  • Provide a platform to discuss consumer perceptions and acceptance of such new technologies, and multi-stakeholder partnerships in the advancement of new technologies in smart eating
