Towards Next-Generation Health: Improving Perception and Interaction with Interconnected Human Data Model
SHORT ABSTRACT OF THE TALK
Inspired by a survey and a number of interviews among wellness and education professionals, I have designed a new type of programming model. The results of the studies show that the professionals almost entirely lack ideas how to benefit the ever-increasing amount of data measured of the humans. I believe that this is because of the missing support for programming models for accessing and handling the data. In this talk I will introduce Human Data Model — a new tool that helps combining data from various sources, performing computations, and developing and scheduling computer-human interactions. The model runs everywhere, is freely available from GitHub, and can be used with the existing IoT platforms.
