Leading health and fitness startup, HealthifyMe on Friday unveiled the world’s first-ever conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled nutritionist Ria. The advanced AI coach will be launched in Beta format in the coming months. 

Expected to transform the way people manage their nutrition and fitness plans, the unveiling was done at HealhifyMe’s annual event “Ignite” in Bengaluru. 

At the event, the company announced that the HealthifyMe app has achieved a 4.6-star rating on Google Play Store, which it claimed was the highest for any Indian app on Play Store. 

Developed under the codename ‘Project Amadeus’, Ria uses key learnings obtained from HealthifyMe’s 150 million tracked meals (20 billion+ macro/micro nutrients) and 10 million message exchanges (1 billion+ words) between coaches and clients. 

Amadeus is the next evolution of “Jarvis”, which is the AI brain that has been assisting coaches to become more efficient by learning from their interactions with clients. 

Similar to Apple’s Siri and Google’s Assistant, Ria can answer questions relating to nutrition and fitness via both audio and text. But it does so at a much more personalised level based on the users’ lifestyle habits and it is available in 10 languages. 

Speaking on the occasion, Tushar Vashisht, CEO of HealthifyMe said, “Our vision is to make healthy living accessible for all. As a first step, we used mobile and cloud to cater to Tier 2/3 cities. Now with AI capabilities, we intend to refine Ria and Jarvis to the point where they can allow us to serve beyond India using qualified nutritionists working from their homes in India but catering to the world.”

HealthifyMe has run several campaigns in 2017 focussed on improving public awareness around nutrition.

The HealthifyMe app combines the power of technology with real human services to deliver measurable impact. It is today India’s largest digital wellness platform catering to 3 million users with over 200 coaches. 

The app is available to download for free and enables users to keep track of their calorie count, set personal fitness goals and evaluate progress. It boasts of the world’s largest database of Indian foods and is compatible with all leading wearables like Fitbit, YuFit and MiBand. 

The current subscription plans range from Rs 999 to Rs 1,699 per month. HealthifyMe connects users with elite nutritionists and trainers who provide elaborate diet and exercise plans, review their progress and work with the users to achieve their fitness goals.
