The rapid evolution of wearable and sensor technology has produced what's known as the quantified self – new, data-driven ways of understanding the body, mind, health and behaviour. However, humans are much more complex than the numerical data produced by digital devices. As technology progresses, how will we come to add context to this data? Will technology dominate and confine our experiences, or will it empower us to better understand the unpredictability of daily life?

Join us in Liberia for a dynamic conversation between technologists, psychologists and experts:
