The QS GVA Meet Up – Happy 2014

Hello

Back on blogging after two intense months of 200% work. I hope you are all fine and the holidays were good. Happy New Year. 2014 will be a great year, glad to be looking for it !

We also back on track with the Quantified Self Meet Up in Geneva. The first 2014 Meet Up – the 10th in total – will be held in the nice cowering / digital culture space of La Muse ! As for the program, we plan a short but dense meet up.

As you know, QS, as all new technologies and society changer, has one step in the present and an other in the future. Our next meet up will provide the same perspective with some really immediately relevant and useful content, as well as some more futuristic forward thinking to fuel your imagination.

Bruno Chanel, a digital strategist and Evernote ambassador in CH, will present a graphic compilation demonstrating links and correlation between various sets of his personal data, collected with Withings (weight, BMI), Evernote Foods (meals) and Jawbone UP (steps, sleeps).  A first time disclosure of all this very, very personal data.

Clement Charles, digital media pioneer, promoter of awareness of both Quantified Self and data privacy, will share a “down the line vision” of the digital immortality, or how connected mankind could stays around for centuries by using life long collected data to create digital copies of themselves.

Comprehensive meta platform for QS and personal data

The world of Qs, data gathering and life logging is still very, very, fragmented to say the least. This fragmentation  is also one of the current issues that normal user have that stops them of tracking their behaviors and habits. Indeed, correlation and therefore knowledge, is only possible were multiple data sets are in the same system, and can be correlated and produce information.

In that sense, I had the pleasure to discover three current project at the QS EU conference last week end. Fluxtream  (captions above), ZenoBase and Sympho.Me . Fluxtream seems the most advanced and the most “exhaustive one” but ZenoBase is also great, smartly done and seems to work very well. Sympho.Me is still in early stage with no much source of data that can be integrated into the account. I will test them a bit more extensively and provide you a more detailed feedbacks in the coming weeks.
