The Quantified Self

The Quantified Self

Defined as a movement to incorporate technology into data acquisition on aspects of a person’s daily life in terms of inputs (e.g. food consumed, quality of surrounding air), states (e.g. mood, blood oxygen levels), and performance (mental and physical), the quantified self is self-knowledge through self-tracking with technology. Such self-monitoring can be easily done through various wearable sensors and apps, which are widely available in the market now. And it is hoped that this quantified self-movement will be able to advance health research and healthcare, to improve the quality of life for future generations. Are you part of the quantified self movement?

 

At TED@Cannes, Gary Wolf gave a 5-minute introduction to using mobile apps and always-on gadgets to track and analyze just about everything in daily life that you can measure.
