[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

Intel partners with Michael J. Fox Foundation for wearables study on Parkinson’s -
During the multiphase research study, patients will monitor their symptoms with wearable devices. Symptoms that the researchers are interested in measuring include slowness of movement, tremor, balance, gait, and sleep quality. Ideally, participants will wear the devices 24 hours a day and seven days a week to maximize the number of readings researchers will receive. Creating correlations between these symptoms could help researchers understand the progression of the neurodegenerative disease and also help them track the disease’s relationship with molecular changes. - traims

Runtastic Orbit: a waterproof wristband that tracks activity, sleep and ambient light -
"You’ll see a small light sensor that tracks the light in your immediate environ. This is then presented to you via a nice colorful graph, and can give an idea of what kind of environments you’re spending your day in. It’s limited with the current version, insofar as it can’t really tell if you’ve been outdoors or not, and it’s certainly not a UV sensor. We’re told this could develop in future iterations though, and will feed in to a much deeper ‘happiness and wellbeing’ metric. “In the future, we plan to do even more with your ambient light data,” explains Runtastic founder Florian Gschwandtner. “Options and ideas are still in the works, but everything from helpful sunscreen reminders, correlations with Happy Tracking, to smart notifications letting people know when they’re most ‘as risk’ for being inactive are possibilities.”" - traims
"the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business. [..] Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy." -
"In all three studies, the researchers credited the [Harry Potter] books with improving the readers' ability to assume the perspective of marginalized groups." -
"... as programmers will tell you, the building part is often not the hardest part: It's figuring out what to build. "Unless you can think about the ways computers can solve problems, you can't even know how to ask the questions that need to be answered".
"Put yourself in places that make you nervous. Nerves are really the only way to know that you’re being stretched. If there hasn't been a moment of nerves in your life for a month, it might be worthwhile asking if you’re pushing hard enough." -
Philips VISIQ, a portable system for making diagnostic ultrasound scans -
"According a new survey by market research firm Evans Data, 17 percent of the world’s software developers are already working on Internet of Things projects. Another 23 percent are planning to start an IoT project within the next six months." -
Much more precise medicine is possible. -
"Because our smartphones are on us 24/7, we can start to do much more. Take psychiatry. We have a company called that monitors your cell phone with your permission. They collect thousands of data points a day. They figure out over a period of time what day of the week you call your mom. What you do on Thursday evening. Do you call your friends to make plans for the weekend? It figures out that this week you didn’t eat. You didn’t go from your bedroom to your kitchen. Your cell phone can tell that. They’ve discovered hundreds of new microbehaviors that can actually be predictive [of mental state]. " - traims
