I'm thrilled to be delivering a keynote - alongside design icon Jenny Kee - in the Blue Mountains this June, at MTNS MADE Creative Industries Symposium. The event runs June 24–25 and tickets are available now.
What are the artistic, creative, technological & research possibilities presented by the #quantifiedself ? What are the social & ethical implications? Who owns your data? What does your biometric data allow you to do for your own health, wellbeing & life? What are the possibilities for medicine, epidemiology, and policy?
There's a LOT of questions here: which is why I'm excited to be hosting a discussion on the topic, Tested On Humans, at Melbourne Knowledge Week. It's presented by Monash University, Faculty of Information Technology, and features a day of fascinating product tests culminating in a discussion with:
Rachel Kalmar: a California-based data consultant, formerly data scientist at Misfit wearables and famous for wearing large numbers of sensors.
Jon McCormack: Director of sensiLab and Professor at Monash University’s Faculty of Information Technology.
Suneel Jethani: PhD candidate and lecturer at the School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne.
The event is on Wednesday May 4, and isfree on registration, here.
