Abstract

Mental health has received increasing attention in recent years, and a correlation between social interaction during eating and mental health noted. The purpose of this research is to determine if wearable devices can be used to recognize whether a person is eating alone or has company. Using a watch-type device and smartphone, the data, while eating in daily life, was collected. Using this data, we were able to recognize whether a person is eating alone or has company with an accuracy of 96.3%.
