Balancing Trustworthy AI and the power to change behaviour for sustainable food acquisition
The environmental footprints of our diet are amongst the largest of all sectors. Not all food contributes to this footprint equally and a shift in our diet choices can positively impact it. Yet, diet habits prove notoriously hard to change. With knowledge about individual choice behaviour, intelligent recommendations could sway an individual’s choices just at the right time. Such powerful recommendation may however need vast amounts of data about people that they may not be comfortable with to share. Transparent recommendations may mean an overload of information to the user that may hinder the potential to quickly digest a recommendation, and with that the effect of the recommendation given. How we design towards meaningful yet trustworthy recommendations in face of this conflict?
This workshop we will collaboratively lay out the challenges around AI recommendations for sustainable diets. After this we will sketch how useful recommendations could be provided.
