Who I am

I'm Jamie Southgate, an Honours student at the University of the Western Cape, conducting research in the field of image processing. If you have any questions regarding tea, biscuits or 'Blighty' come find me in the Honours Lab.


More on 'that' project

With people becoming increasingly aware of their terrible diet and lifestyle, information regarding nutrition has become ever neccessary.

The aim of this project is to be able to recognise different foods using Image Processing and to provide nutritional information to the user. (and show them the error of his/her ways)

Food Recognition is considered somewhat of a new 'frontier' for Image Processing and the fact that Dieticians will never be able to code has led me to undertake this daunting mission.
