Description

Self-tracking involves the collection of any data that can be measured about one’s self over time. Focusing on the incorporation of technology into data acquisition, the session will present forecasts and stories from luminaries and those leading the self-tracking movement.

Sonny Vu, PhD is the co-founder of Misfit Wearables, makers of wearable sensor products for wellness and medical applications. He is also the co-founder of AgaMatrix, which made the world¹s first hardware medical device (a glucose meter) that works with the iPhone, winner of the Red Dot Design Award, and has sold over 1 billion biosensors for people with diabetes. Previously, he was CTO of a software start-up where he invented a number of machine learning-assisted natural language processing technologies. He studied math (BS) at UIUC and linguistics (PhD) under Noam Chomsky at MIT.

Michael Seid, PhD, is Director of Health Outcomes and Quality of Care Research in the Division of Pulmonary Medicine and a Core Faculty in the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. With Peter Margolis, MD PhD, he is co-Principal Investigator of the C3N Project, funded by a Transformative R01 grant from the NIH to design and test a new system for transforming chronic care.

Ian Eslick is an accomplished entrepreneur, computer scientist, and software architect who is currently finishing his PhD at the Media Laboratory as a Lybba Research Fellow. Mr. Eslick holds degrees in computer science, electrical engineering, and artificial intelligence. Eslick’s PhD work focuses on the practical and clinical value of aggregated self-experiments and how communities can use this to create virtuous feedback loops that inform decision making and influence clinical research. Central to this work is harnessing new sensor technologies for measuring and tracking our everyday lives. He is also partnered with the LAM (Lymphangioleiomyomatosis) Treatment Alliance in the development of LAMsight, a data sharing platform for LAM patients, clinicians and researchers. Eslick holds over a dozen patents and serves as an adviser to startup companies, non-profits and venture capital firms.

Ernesto Ramirez is currently a PhD candidate in the Joint Doctoral Program (Health Behavior) at San Diego State University and University of California, San Diego. He is currently working at the Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems (CWPHS). He focuses on how to use existing and new technologies to create persuasive systems that positively impact health behaviors. He is also the community organizer for Quantified Self, a global collaboration among users and makers of self-tracking tools.
