Talk: Take Control of the Data of You

You have the power to change your life with actionable insights from your own data. As Alan Turing famously said - "Sometimes it's the very people who no one imagines anything of that do the things that no one can imagine".

In this session I want to share a personal story of how I have grown to understand my own data and share examples of how the data of you may be one of the first big data sets that you can master to have the most profound impact on the way that you form habits and gain insight into your personal health. I will demonstrate Cortana Analytics Suite and introduce Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and show how I have used it to detect the early warning signs of getting a virus. I will demonstrate Microsoft’s new globally distributed, multi-model database service Cosmos DB and show how you can use it to connect to Azure Search to create a cross platform bot that provides insight to my behaviours. You’ll be inspired and full of ideas on what you could do with your own personal health data and be buzzing with ideas on how you can use your own digital personal assistant to ask questions of your data.
