Chris Dancy: Becoming a Mindful Cyborg

November 2, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Biomed B103

In a world of rising anxiety and commodified attention, it’s easy to distrust our devices. But what if putting away our phones won’t fix our problems? What if the pathway to wellness requires not unplugging but connecting differently? Join author, entrepreneur, and technologist Chris Dancy to discover why he’s become a mindful cyborg. Christopher Dancy has been called “the world’s most connected human.” As part of an ambitious health and wellness experiment on himself, he utilizes up to 700 sensors, diagnostic services, and tracking apps to measure and optimize every aspect of his life, from caloric intake to well-being. His work has been featured in Businessweek, BBC, Wired, and the Wall Street Journal, as well as the Showtime documentary Dark Net (2016). He is the author of Don’t Unplug: How Technology Saved My Life and Can Save Yours Too. Sponsored by Kamehameha Schools Data Science Institute, Hawaii Data Science Institute, the NSF INCLUDES Alliance, and the UH Better Tomorrow Speaker Series.
