Published on

Quantified Self is entering unchartered waters. Unchartered waters in privacy and freedom of information, as well as unchartered waters of knowledge about ourselves. How do we navigate biosensor information and pick which bits are important, and which one’s aren’t.

Unchartered Waters Of Quantified Self - Sleep And Poo.

  1. 1. Unchartered Waters Quantified Self, our value biases and where we go from here.
  2. 2. Wearables? (the pessimists view) The Beginnings… So many little things to charge! WHY! +accelerometer +connectivity +heart rate +connectivity +accelerometer Do they really help? How OCD do you have to be to use these things? Did they actually help you change? Where do we go from here? What is the point? +weight +CO2 +heart rate +connectivity +accelerometer +accelerometer
  3. 3. Why are “wearables” cool anyway? Can’t you sense yourself? Don’t you know when you went for run, what more do you want? Get movin’!
  4. 4. Can technology change us? . Times Square – Distraction Capital Of The World. ADHD anybody?
  5. 5. Where should we place our focus? • Jawbone • Basis • Misfit Shine • Withings Scale • Mio • Your cellphone • Accelerometer • Temperature sensor • Electrodermal activity • Optical sensor for heart • Electropotential sensor QRST waveform, • Heart rate variability • microphone • Camera • CO2 gas sensor
  6. 6. Wearables(the optimists view) – are tools for changing ourselves. Our bodies are high maintenance and inconvenient. Let’s outsource as much as possible, so we can then choose where to place our focus?
  7. 7. Wearable next steps. Simplifying the human as a black box. INPUT OUTPUT • Poo • Urine • Energy(exercise) • Breathing • Food and Water • Air(breathi ng) DATA BIASES
  8. 8. Simpler functions that humans could automate further? Perfecting calorie intake, through constant blood monitoring. Exercise for vasculature maintenance – TENS stimulators Bowel Movements, and tracking Bladder Fullness and emptying. Freeing us to do other things, and reach greater heights? Body as an Input/Output Black Box:
  9. 9. Not all wearables need to be sexy to give us information about our health. Poo – Bristol Stool Scale BabyPoo – The first imaging processing app to automate poo classification.
  10. 10. Another major area for wearables is the time when we are unconscious. Snore Loop, Sleep Lab, Sleep Cycle, Zeo Spectral Detection Of Snoring Breathing Regularity Over The Night
  11. 11. Incontinence • 28 Million adults suffer from incontinence. • All children have problem mastering their bladder that continue for varying amounts of time… • Half of all people in retirement homes have this problem. • Diapers are a 20 Billion dollar per year industry.
  12. 12. Let’s stop being a black box Let’s forget about black boxes, and look inside non-invasively… mm wave radar
  13. 13. And further…. Past: Complex, expensive, detailed, regulated, small scale, inaccessible Shrink It! Make It Accessible
  14. 14. Progress? Pedometer Pedometer Connected To Cloud Heart rate GSR Temperature Higher resolution sensors that are hand held. Complete transparency, big data advances in health and communications?

  16. 16. Our understanding of health improves, as do the feedback loops between us The bandwidth in, through the eyes and ears is much bigger than speech out. It’d would be awesome to have a mind’s eye to express ideas to others faster and more clearly.
