Leslie Saxon: Body Computing

Join us for a compelling interview between Body Computing Pioneer, Dr. Leslie Saxon and Rackspace Tech Evangelist and Social Media Influencer, Robert Scoble. Broadcasting live from Google Glass (if SXSW allows it), we’ll explore what happens when networked humans dynamically connect to better control and manage their health, lifestyle, devices, machines, homes, climate and personal information. We will discuss how wireless and mobile devices–worn, and/or implanted in human bodies--may someday connect us to everything-- from from Dr. Jones to Dr Dre. You’ll hear about technology at work in ways that were once unimaginable as body computing shapes the future of healthcare, lifestyle management and communication. We’ll highlight key areas of development and research that are driving future direction dynamic new technologies and discuss future applications for body area networks.
