Sponsored by Hill+Knowlton Strategies

Imagine a world in which everything you say and do, and how your body responds, is tracked and analyzed.

Our panel features speakers who have imagined that world and worked to create it as entrepreneurs, executives, investors, organizers and fanatics. Aided by new technology, more people than ever are using data to truly know everything about their well-being – even down to their amino acid levels. If you are interested in learning the latest thinking in the Quantified Self movement, whether or not you collect data about yourself, do not miss this panel.

The trend goes beyond athletes recording training data and dieters logging calories. Innovators are making it easy for all of us to measure the seemingly immeasureable. The future of self-tracking may help us understand and conquer the most devastating diseases, or it may waste our time and take away privacy.

What seems like a geeky concept right now has the potential to change how we live.
