Meet the Most Connected Human on Earth during iHCI 2014

Chris Dancy is known as the Most Connected Human on Earth and is coming to The Helix, DCU on 2nd Sept for the 8th Irish Human Computer Interaction conference (iHCI 2014).

Chris Dancy has been engaging information systems for over 25 years, wearing as many hats as there are heads in the IT industry. He currently works as an ambassador to the future, serving the role of Data Exhaust Cartographer--he utilizes 300-700 sensors, devices, applications, and services to track, analyze, and optimize as many areas of his existence as he can think of. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.

Currently Chris is on a sabbatical helping organizations, individuals and conferences focus on wearable technology, wellness and wellbeing. Chris has been featured in TechCrunch, Wired Magazine, Bloomberg TV, NPR Radio, Mashable, The Guardian, BBC and Fox News.

The Human Information System- BYOD, Wearable Computing and Imperceptible Electronics

You are the greatest information system that you will manage, own, or work with. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) entered the cultural lexicon of knowledge work sometime in the 2000s. While most pundits will give you hours of debate on BYOD, it's pointless babble. BYOD was the cultural canary in the digital coal mine. Today, in 2014, wearable computing is invading the workplace. Google Glass, Health Sensors, and every form of ambient, calm computing you can think of. Our cubes are surveillance work spaces both from above and from "within." As we move quickly through wearable devices to a future of imperceptible devices, how do we create the greatest value for our organization given the way data affects our personal lives and culture?
We will answer the following in this session:
What is a wearable and how will wearables transition to Imperceptibles?
How to use responsible bi-directional surveillance in the workplace?
Use cases for wearable computing in knowledge work

Dates: 1st & 2nd of September 2014
Location: The Helix - DCU
