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. In this session I will talk about Microsoft Health and the Microsoft Band. I will show you how you can extend the device to build innovative apps and experiences using the SDK. I will also talk about Microsoft Azure Machine Learning and will give you example around how you can use the service to look for correlations in your data and leverage tools like Power BI to visualize your datasets. This isn't a hardcore development session but it one that I hope will leave you inspired and full of ideas on what you could do with your own personal health data and leaving you buzzing with ideas on how you can integrate machine learning into your own development solutions.
