Big, Open & Beautiful #8: We are data

20-1-16 20:00
Pakhuis de Zwijger (studio), Piet Heinkade 179, Amsterdam

'Big, Open & Beautiful' is a series of Waag and Pakhuis de Zwijger full of inspiring speakers. Each session we will discuss another aspect of open data, big data and data visualization. On January 20th, 2016 the eight meeting in the series will be held about our personal data.

We consist of data and people are becoming more aware of that. The Quantified Self movement is growing, e-coaching is getting more popular and the hardware and software that can be used for self-monitoring is improving every day. But what can we do with all this new knowledge? What personal data do we want to keep for ourselves and what are the new possibilities in the near future?

During this evening we will talk about these subjects and we will take a look at some new measuring applications.
