Sogeti Labs
July 19, 2013

The Metrics of Me: Quantified, Augmented and Unstoppable. We are empowered with God-like technology and beholden to a system of measurement that can only be described as a wooden ruler. Chris will explore the metrics of today’s and tomorrow’s knowledge worker. Rooted deeply in quantified self, today’s humans are carrying more than devices, they are moving data factories. In this very intimate tour, see how the work of moving knowledge, recording bio-activity, archiving your social habits and even actions that happen around the house all add up to create the most astounding image of the last generation not to be automatically quantified.
The body as a platform is a interesting concept for personal data analytics in the context of wearable computing and the quantified self. What if these tools leave the health-paradigm and enter the workspace.
