Creating A Common Language For The Internet of Food
A traumatic early experience as a young medical intern set Dr. Matthew Lange on a career course to change the way the world thinks about nutrition. He realized early on that by focusing on treatment of the sick after years of poor eating habits rather than helping people to better understand nutrition and the impact of their food choices over the course of a lifetime, the medical community had it all backwards.
From these early days, Dr. Lange has spent his career at the intersection of food, nutrition and information. His latest project is helping to create a common language for the food industry to use to use as technology enables better ways to extract data from the food itself. Lange and other believe that this common language that describes the Internet of Food will help usher in new ways to create, handle, distribute, cook and consume food, with much of the focus on healthier outcomes for a large percentage of the world's population.
