Why the New Digital Health Apps Might Succeed Where Self-Help Fails -
"Anyone's health is part of an ongoing story. No individuals got to the condition of health they are in today without multiple health events and choices occurring throughout their life to get them there." "Consider one scenario, where a seasoned triathlete in his mid-50s monitors his heart rate during workouts, using his wristband device. His biometric data feed shows sustained periods of heart rate over 200 beats per minute -- significantly more than the 170 bpm maximum for his age group. He tends to consume a lot of caffeine, he has a low body mass index, and his patient record shows complaints of heart palpitations. His trajectory, informed by data on thousands of others with a similar profile, shows a definite risk of heart attack, and the possibility of atrial arrhythmia. By discovering the high heart rate, the device points the way for him to get additional tests with a cardiologist, reduce his caffeine intake, and possibly modify his exercise regimen to ensure that his heart rate doesn't continue to exceed the maximum." - traims

New Smart Street Corners That Will Act Like a Fitbit for the City -
"Every 15 seconds these sensors will gather information like temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide, vibrations, light, and sound—pretty standard stuff. But Charlie Catlett, director of the Urban CCD, says gathering even basic data can help us to evaluate some of our cities’ most unquantifiable features like hyper-local air quality, pedestrian traffic, emergency route efficiency, and resource allocation like salt for icy roads." - traims

[PDF] Identifying User Traits by Mining Smart Phone Accelerometer Data -
"We show that it is possible to identify a user’s sex, whether they are short or tall, and whether they are light or heavy [..] Similarly, we demonstrate that we can predict a user’s height and weight, but that such fine grained predictions are of only modest quality." - traims
