Name of research project
Can artificial intelligence help improve physical activity among people from ethnic minority groups? (AI-ACTIV-E)
What is the project?
Despite people knowing that physical activity is important for them and their health, many people do not get enough physical activity. Providing people with personalised and tailored information about their health, physical activity, lifestyle, and resources in the community, may be one way to help increase levels of physical activity. However, well-designed ways to deliver personalised lifestyle and physical activity advice are not yet widely available.
Artificial intelligence (also known as AI) is a type of technology that enable computers to perform a variety of advanced functions, including the ability to see, understand and translate spoken and written language, analyse data, make recommendations, and more. Artificial intelligence can simulate human intelligence processes by using computers. You have probably interacted with AI whether you know it or not. For example, on a website, and a window pops up on your screen asking if you need help.
What is the aim?
The aim of this study is help us find out whether the use of AI might be a good way to help people become more physically active.
