Sharing Self-Collected Data by Andrei Pop

From the Quantified Self Public Health Symposium

March 24, 2016

“If I am able to take my data out of this place and share it with something that I find useful, I can actually unlock more value from the underlying source.”

Andrei Pop is the co-founder of Human API, whose purpose is to open the world of self-collected data to app developers, so they can build new experiences tied to the health and fitness questions people may have about themselves. Many of these apps built on top of Human API are for health care providers, but there are many other possible uses. In this talk, Andrei argues for “data liquidity” as the key to unlocking value for all stakeholders.
