For this event we will have three exciting speakers and of course the opportunity to network with some of the brightest minds in town. J These are our presentations:
Christian Margolus - Killing my sugar cravings – How I learned to control my hunger by continuously measuring my blood sugar level
Christian is the founder of Bodylabs (http://web.bodylabs.de/), a startup that lets you check you analyze your body age. He wanted to understand where his hunger and his sleepiness in the afternoon came from. Therefore he measured his blood sugar levels for four days in a row – every wakening hour. Since then he effortlessly changed his eating habits and never felt tired in the afternoon anymore.
Michael Reuter - Simplifying self-tracking with automatization
Michael is a Co-Founder of QS and Big Data startup Datarella (http://datarella.de/). He will share his very subjective take on Quantified Self: He doesn't have time to spare and everything he does must be time-optimized. Ideally, it should work automatically. For him, QS must function on the fly, ideally all data are passively collected, aggregated, analyzed and come with the appropriate recommendations. Michael will show us the tool he is using and also his ideas on future developments for self-tracking applications.
