We are excited to announce that our Co-Founder and CEO Steve Caldwell will be participating in a dual session at SXSW 2016 with Structure’s Co-Founder and CEO, Charlie Key.
This session, titled Leveraging Human Data From Wearables, will take a look at human data and how it can be leveraged for retailers, CPGs, and in the IoT as a whole. The big question is how to apply IoT and human data in ways that will resonate with customers so that they actually are compelled to adopt them. We hope you’ll join us to learn more!
The panel will take place on Monday, March 14th, from 5:00-6:00pm (Central), at the JW Marriott, Salon D, 110 E 2nd St.
Add it to your personal SXSW schedule.
Leveraging Human Data From Wearables
There are hundreds of millions of wearables users today and the wearables category is growing. Wearables, smartphones, activity tracking platforms, and even smart medical devices have given us a new data stream to consider as developers, designers, and marketers. Human data gives us rich insights and context on critical human behaviors, biometrics, activity types/intensity, eating, and sleeping. Where is the potential in this data and how can it be leveraged? In this session we’ll look at how two companies, Strap and Structure, are leveraging human data to help transform marketing and the IoT.
Theme: Design and Development
Intended Audience: Marketers, developers and designers interested in data from wearables
