  3. 3. AgendaA focus on Citizen Science for HealthWhat role does Quantified Self play inpromoting Citizen Science?Will Citizen Science accelerate the pace of newscientific discoveries in the 21stcentury?How can Quantified Self support the growth ofCitizen Science in developing nations?What are the risks of citizens conducting theirown scientific research?

  5. 5. The bigger picture2011 - “Personal data is the new oil and the new currencyof the digital world”− Source: World Economic Forum2013 - “Big data is set to become one of the greatestsources of power in the 21stcentury”− Source: BBC Horizon documentaryToday - “Imagine being able to put sensors in your bodythat go to different organs, and they’re just sitting theremonitoring your internal health. I wouldn’t be surprised ifwithin two to three years, they didn’t have an app thatcould diagnose my health better than my cardiologist can”− Source: Vivek Wadhwa, Faculty, Singularity University
  6. 6. What can Citizen Scientists do?help gather data that will be analysed by professionalresearchershelp analyze data that has been gathered by professionalresearchersvolunteer at a research center or join a research expedition,such as those organized by the Earthwatch Institute.compete in competition such as NASAs International SpaceApps Challengebuild and operate their own instruments to gather data for theirown experiments or as part of a larger project.use their own organs as scientific sensors.Source: Wikipedia
  7. 7. Patients and Big DataPatients (in USA) are starting to realise thevalue of their own health dataA few of the initiatives in 2013 (click on logos to visit the site)Our Health Data Cooperative
  8. 8. New streams of dataSentiment analysis of social media channelsGenomic data (e.g )Online patient communities (e.g patientslikeme)App data (EEG, blood sugar, ECG, skingalvanization, physical activity)GlassSensors in carsInternet of Things/Internet of everythingInformation Obesity
  9. 9. Smartphones and sensors allow anyoneon the planet to gather and process health dataMobile Health Sensors linked to a mobile healthapp2017 forecast: $5.6 billion (CAGR: 69%)Truesense is the world’s smallestwearable bio-sensor35 EurosCaptures EEG, ECG, EMG, motionsand posturesShown at Quantified Self Europe 2013 conference
