Extra virgin olive oil is very beneficial to our health due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Only a fifth of the extra virgin olive oils sold in Switzerland met the quality's requirements. This project aims to investigate a new method for the analysis of extra virgin olive oils through optical non-invasive and contactless measuring techniques combined with artificial intelligence. The measuring principle is fluorescence spectroscopy fingerprinting, which offers a detailed insight into substance's chemical composition. However, olive oil's fluorescent fingerprint contains a large amount of "encoded" chemical information that is very hard to extract. Artificial intelligence algorithms can be the solution to "decode" this information.
