I Sing the Body Digital: The Quantified Self
Quantified Self has become all the buzz at the intersection of the technology and health and fitness worlds - but are every day consumers really getting the benefit of the huge amount of data they are now tracking?
Sarah Robb O'Hagen, President of Equinox, will moderate a conversation with the world's leading thinkers in this space to understand the answers and the opportunities going forward. Why are consumers attracted to movement, nutrition, and sleep data? What are they doing with it? Is data tracking truly helping to improve the chronic issues our country is developing around lack of constant movement and chronic sleep deprivation? As leaders in the business of high performance living, the participants in this panel will provide a perspective on what it takes to move from data tracking to true systemic behavior change, and what the opportunities are for the tech community to make a meaningful impact in this space.
