A Conspiracy Theorist’s Guide to Health Tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What if buying junk food and not hitting your daily activity goal raised your insurance? What if your watch alerted big pharma that you’re blood pressure is too high? Would you be surprised to learn the government is spying on you from the inside? You may not know it, but you could be opting into the largest conspiracy ever imagined.
Buzzwords like the Internet of Things, quantified self and the cloud get people excited, buying products and signing up for services, all while masking the underlying dark side. Web, social and location tracking is child’s play. Think about all the biometrics from wearables, implantables & smart pills. Besides you and your doctor, who else could benefit from that data? What could they do with it? How could it affect you?
It’s the convergence of technology, government and healthcare and it may have consumers sacrificing privacy and control for the benefits of technology. Let’s explore this vast conspiracy and the role you play in it.
