August 19, 2013

At our Quantified Self conferences we focus our show&tell talks on personal, first person narratives of self-tracking and self-knowledge. But what if first person is actually two people instead of one? Well, that’s when things get interesting!

At the upcoming Quantified Self Global Conference we are excited to have Dr. Rosane Oliveira talking about her self-tracking experiments that she’s been conducting with her twin sister. This great talk will include explorations of genetic testing, metabolic biomarkers, gut microbiome and mobile monitoring of diet, weight, sleep, mood, and activity levels.

Lucky for us, we’ve already received a preview of sorts in the form of a wonderful talk Rosane presented at the Bay Area QS meetup group in March of 2012. Watch the video below and come prepared to learn more about what you Rosane was able to learn when she started tracking with her genetic double.

The Quantified Self Global Conference will be held in San Francisco on October 10th and 11th. Registration is now open. As with all our conferences our speakers are members of the community. We hope to see you there!

Inspired by the achievements of the Quantified Self community, we want to do what we can to help everybody trying to learn about themselves using empirical methods.
