Quantified Self and the Self-Tracking Movement

On May 30 from 12-1 pm, Ernesto Ramirez will speak about “Quantified Self and the Self-Tracking Movement” as part of the UC San Diego Biomedical Library lunchtime seminar series.

Quantified Self is “a movement to incorporate technology into data acquisition on aspects of a person’s daily life in terms of inputs (food consumed, quality of surrounding air), states (e.g., mood, arousal, blood oxygen levels), and performance (mental and physical).”  Self trackers share their methods, tools and results with one another in a variety of ways, including meetupsforums, and Quantified Self conferences.

Ernesto Ramirez is an organizer and community builder for Quantified Self. He is also working towards a Ph.D. degree in Public Health and is “developing the science of persuasive health technology” at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (CALIT2) and the UC San Diego Center for Wireless & Population Health Systems.

Space is limited so RSVP as soon as possible in order to reserve a seat. Feel free to bring a discreet lunch; cookies and water will be provided.
