Presented by Maggie Greyson, Myant
and Milad Alizadeh-Meghrazi, Myant

Overview
How will we create space for human nature in the future? What might our accelerated future look like? We are embedding sensors into everything. The predicted worldwide spending on the Internet of Things forecast to reach nearly $1.4 Trillion in 2021. This includes in health, currency, self-driving cars, drones, smart cities, connected homes, manufacturing, etc. If these smart things don’t have a keyboard or a Siri, how to we assert any control over them? What if an individual can’t speak or move, how will they participate on any given day?

The purpose of the presentation is to share ideas to create leadership for the audience in appreciating the value of biodata. What can we do with access to the human body? This black box we lug around with us. The quantified self, loved ones, circle of care, social media, insurance companies. While others discuss ethics, insurance policies and security breaches covering the electronic person we are planning for mass adoption of e-textiles because social acceptance changes over time. Our fear of cell phones tracking our every move has turned into millions of Waze users who want that anonymized data to help make their lives better. We already give up our location, declare our social connections, track our purchase habits, and want medical records to track our health.

Objective
The audience will understand that the future of biodata is happening now and that it has immense applications in various industries such as IOT, healthcare and AR/VR.

Target Audience
Makers, programmers, people interested in futures, wearables, engineering, global markets, human-centered design, creative technologists.

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn
Many wearables are point solutions, textile is the only foundation that can consolidate the fragmented wearables space and provide the greatest coverage of the human body for monitoring
The digital presence achieved through biodata, which will ultimately be a new form of communication to the self, others and AI
The seamless and non-habit change nature of textiles allows for continuous connection through a form factor which will lead to high compliance
Companies who are already thinking about biodata – like Amazon, Google, Apple, IBM, Facebook are most likely to develop ambient and continuous connection solutions
Measuring biodata across platforms (bed sheets, bathmat, furniture, car seats) means more information to anticipate and prevent future health problems. An accumulation of biodata and artificial intelligence leads to anticipatory healthcare. Experts can use this information to impart wisdom that generate actionable insights and preventative measures
