A Biometric Future
Presently, we have a huge prevalence of quantified self-monitoring and tracking steps, calories eaten, time spent sleeping, sitting, etc. As more functionality comes from monitoring biometrics, more people are willing to share their personal data with the public. Biometrics are also useful for very important things such as authentication and health monitoring, showing a distinct vignette of an individual. When the frequency of sharing personal biometric becomes ubiquitous to gain utility, how does that scale with privacy issues and boredom of perfection? Can Hyper-personalization lead to experiential echo-chambers? A Biometric Future looks at this complex interplay in the not-too-distant future.
