Meetup #4 - Personalized Healthcare and QS

  • Sep 4, 2013 · 6:15 PM
  • ETH Zurich, Hauptgebäude (HG), Floor G, Room 19.1

Please join us on Wednesday, September 4th for a meetup to learn about the future of personalized healthcare via QS.



18:15 - Meet and greet - Some drinks and light food will be available as we meet each other and discuss our interests.

19:00 - HealthBank - Professor Ernst Hafen of ETH will present his QS startup: HealthBank. They aim to setup a personalized health data repository in Switzerland, where your data is properly secured and meaning can be extracted from it.

19:30 - SmartCoping - an innovative solution for recognising and monitoring stress. 
The research project SmartCoping is developing a mobile solution aimed at the early recognition and monitoring of stress. For this purpose, heart rate variability - a good indicator for stress - and possibly other vital parameters such as skin conductivity are continuously captured by means of non-invasive sensors and communicated to a smartphone, where they are visualized to provide feedback about personal stress levels. At the same time contextual and activity information will be gathered by internal smartphone sensors. To recognise patterns in the data streams users will give feedback about their stress level. 

19:45 - QS and health discussion.  Let's discuss how we are currently leveraging QS technologies to benefit our health.  I'll give a bit of info on exciting devices that will be appearing in the next year or so.

20:00 - Social time.


We are happy to host presentations of self-tracking projects of our members.  It's a great opportunity for you to actually take a look at your data, think about what it means, and generate a dialog around your self-tracking interests.  If you'd like to present, just send me an email ([masked]).  If you wish to make a computer presentation, we will have the capabilities to project it.  For guidance on presentations, please see:


Finding the room

You should enter the main building (HG) of ETH from the big double doors on the Rämistrasse side, or on the opposite side from the polyterasse. The room is on the G floor (2 floors up from the entrance). From Rämistrasse, as you face HG, it's on the right side of the building and on the Rämistrasse side. There are maps posted regularly within HG. Feel free to call me (Winslow) at [masked] if you need further assistance.
