Move over Vegans, because the Me-gan diet (Me-ganism) is set to take the stage as the mainstream diet of the future. This hyper-personalised diet, tailored to your specific nutritional needs, will be powered by AI technology, ensuring that your dietary choices are optimized for your well-being.
Underpinning the Me-gan diet and lifestyle is the integration of Personal AIs. (shown left from Deliveroo) These personal AI companions will be your lifelong buddies, automating and tailoring your eating experiences based on your preferences and needs at any given time.
