Announcing: Why Personal Science Really Matters

T minus 25 days until the Quantified Self Conference, and we have another exciting announcement. Seth Roberts will be giving a keynote on “Why Personal Science Really Matters.”

Seth Roberts’ pioneering work in self-tracking and self-experimentation has led to discoveries about diet, cognition, mood, and sleep. His use of daily measurements of basic activities as a baseline for personal experiments has inspired many in the Quantified Self movement.

Here, he will talk about personal science, and why it matters. Personal science is science done to help yourself. It is especially important now because conventional health care has stagnated badly. Personal science, on the other hand, has not stagnated.

Roberts will give examples of how persons trying to help themselves have found highly useful new ways of dealing with common health problems. He will discuss what we can learn from successful examples of personal science and why our own experiments are more useful and valid than we might think.

Thanks Seth, looking forward to hearing what you have to say at the conference!
