The Human Information System -Wearable Computing, Quantified Self and Ethical Computing


Published on

Parts of this deck are available as part of a TEDx Talk here:

What if you received information about your health and living habits in the same way it was made available to a world class researcher or scientist? What could mountains of actionable data do for your life, and how might it inform the way you live?

The movement started with life logging and the quantified self. Now the first data-driven health “prosumers” are rapidly emerging. From measuring the decay of their DNA to adjusting the humidity in their homes, citizen scientists of this decade will radically redefine healthcare as we understand it and daily life as they experience it.

In this session, we will explore:

How the role of clinician, physician, and facility evolve in this world

The role of data collection in understanding present choices and future health outcomes

How to correlate environmental conditions with our biological systems

How emerging trends in genetics and home health will transform the world in the next few years

The top five things we can do with mobile devices to begin taking charge of our health experience

  4. 4. 4 WELCOME Chris Dancy Chief Digital Officer & Mindful Cyborg Technology has been designed to be interruptive and intrusive to our daily lives. By designing systems that collect information naturally in the background as we go about our day and allowing digital services to translate that behavior into effective ambient, calm and kind feedback, we can dramatically change our sense of well-being. Hi everyone, we need each other.

  9. 9. 9 Why did I start this journey? Nothing has really happened until it’s has been recorded. We save everything or nothing. We were told to show our work, to save our games, to document our time. We live in systems We live in PC’s, mobile phones, fitness trackers, smart homes, monitored environments. We are suffering We have never had more freedom yet felt so empty, anxious and busy. Existence
  10. 10. 10 Record and teach. Removing each other from the story. 700 Years Art Design, Photography 2000 Years Art Design, Photography 3500 Years Recording our versions of history. 30,000 Years Language and learning in the age of fight or flight. Existence

  14. 14. 14 Record and relive? The relentless now. 2015 “It’s not about your activity, it’s about proving you exist. 2015 “We are forced to remember what year it is” Existence
  15. 15. 15 Selling you back Why are we buying back our behavior? January 2015, want to be healthier in the new year? So does Apple. It’s not about food or being active, it’s about remembering who you are!
  16. 16. 16 We’re dissolving right in front of our own eyes. Your digital life is a lot like the ark The ability to save everything has made the value of everything nothing Yes we can stream music, movies and life, but who is watching and how? When you can speed up, slow down, pause, rewind everything you can’t stand any system that can’t keep up We are becoming a culture of walking web pages, advertising our selves. Now that we can capture share and throw every detail of our lives online, there is not need to live in anything other than the museum we’ve created. Existence

  21. 21. 21 2008 The Inner-net Existence What if I told you you never had to go offline? Everything we touch is recorded. Credit cards, club cards, social sites, searches, car computers, home utilities. What could we learn if we had access to all our data, how could it change us?
  22. 22. LET’S TALK ABOUT WHO WE ARE Section 01 – About Company / Team / And Services Five Steps
  23. 23. 23 Step 1: How am I? The most intimate of information is stored where and shown to you how? My chart Digitized my chart My notes Started my own notes Paper Could not find answers Doctor Didn’t know me. Existence
  24. 24. 24 Step 1: The Worried Well. Shame and fear of not being perfect. Platforms Recreate the 1990’s IT department. Wearable Technology Measure and shame. Patient communities Compare notes. Big Data Flu trends Existence
  25. 25. 25 Step 1: Changing the future. Environments shape people, not genes Genetics The building blocks. Microbiomes The little bits. Existence
  26. 26. 26 Step 2: Who am I? Most people exist in 100-300 different digital systems. Existence
  27. 27. 27 Step 3: How do you organize a life? Who are you? Soft Data Core Data Lab results, Micro biome, genetics. The “quantified” self. Hard Data Wearable, IOT, biological and environmental data that can’t easily be manipulated. The “actual” self. Existence Digital signature, identity, tastes, preferences. The “constructed” self. The “Fluid” self. Our behavior is made up of many facets of our digital experience, ranging from what are preferences are, how our bodies and environments react to our genetic code.
  28. 28. 28 Step 4: Find what’s important. Easy to collect, categorize, prioritize and transport. Project Move my information into a repository where I can see, search and mine my information. Reflect Prioritize what’s important for me. What are my basic human needs and how do they relate to the data I’m creating? Protect Categorize my data so it makes sense and I can see how I spend my time. Collect Collect personal data with little intervention and live my life. Existence
  29. 29. 29 Step 5: How do you visualize your time? Your living behavior is the genetic code for habit change. Existence Being able to see, search, mine, toggle and review my time in a calendar, weighted to the type of information and it’s purpose in my life is a break through. Suddenly random interactions cast a shadow of meaningful insight into your day to day habits. Coincidence becomes opportunities to retool fate to put into motions different versions of a timeline.
  30. 30. OUR WORK AMAZING Section 05 – Our Work Sustainable change can’t be scheduled.
  31. 31. 31 Chronos time An ordered view of time is the definition of how we experience our existence. Existence The ability to see your life in order creates a profound sense of direction. Timelines create a meaning for reflection and measurement. Chronos time as the Greek’s saw it defined the purpose in order for our time and days. Western civilization understand linear time so that we can make sense of events.
  32. 32. 32 Kairos time A seasonal view of our time is the definition of the possibilities of our existence. Existence The seasons or the opportune times in your life are harder to spot. These times, the Greeks referred to as “Kairos” don’t fall in a neat order. Biblically the God of Abraham referred to this as seasons. In each of our interconnected lives we have seasons that change us and each other. If you could see yourself in a season or a collection of seasons, real change at a cellular level is possible.

We autosuggest answers to each other. Connectivity You have no friends. People struggle to feel connected and become uncomfortable when they are not. Contortion Dangerous behavior for no one. We contort our body to capture moments. Consistency You are the machine. We change our behavior to avoid humans, judgment and shame. Existence
