SOBA: Science and the Quantified Self (Free)

I'm finding lots of cool events at Bay Area Science Festival. More to come...

The SOBA community checks in on self-tracking, life-logging, and all things Quantified Self. Where does science fit into this movement, and can data really make us healthier?

Join us at swissnex San Francisco as Gary Wolf, co-founder of The Quantified Self, a global collaboration among users and makers of self-tracking tools exploring "self-knowledge through numbers," shares the potential of the movement for scientific discovery and health. Rachel Kalmar, a data scientist at Misfit Wearables explores devices, data, and what's wrong with how we currently share data. And UCSF's Dr. Tuhin Sinha reports on the Health eHeart Study, a large self-reported digital study in cardiovascular health, aimed at one million participants.

Presentations are followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. Continue the conversation at a nearby bar (to be announced at the event).

Wednesday, 07/17/13, 07:00 PM - 08:30 PM, Free!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
