Internet of Things Edit

The Quantified Self is

an Internet of Things concept that implies a perpetually "tracked" human, with sensors monitoring everything from sleep and exercise to food, moods, and habits. This tracking is done via sensors, apps, and wearable technology.[1]
[a] movement that started in 2007 which uses modern technical advances to gain more insight into one’s own life, by collecting data relating to, amongst other things, health and emotions. This data is then used to improve a person's lifestyle and state of mind.[2]
