Chris Dancy - "The most connected human on Earth."


The past future perfect of digital health

Any attempt at writing about Chris Dancy, “the most connected human on Earth” explodes with the paradox of having too much information and not enough. Self-proclaimed “tech fluffer, data exhaust cartographer, apopheniac, and purveyor of bespoke existence maps,” Chris is as sensitive and poetic as he remains stubbornly and compulsively analytical.

Rise of mindful tech: every step you take, every move you make

Once upon a time there was an evil overlord known as the internet. The internet commanded an army of iPhones that enslaved humanity by unleashing an information overload. We were freed only by the act of unplugging and undergoing a gruelling but cleansing digital detoxification. This is the fairytale we are told about our smartphones and other connected devices.

The Guide to the Future of Medicine: Technology AND The Human Touch

Interview from my digital health habits. A few short years ago, it would have been hard to imagine that exoskeletons could enable paralyzed people to walk again; that billions of people would rely on social media for information; and that the supercomputer Watson would be a key player in medical decision-making. Perhaps more than in any other field, technology has transformed medicine and healthcare in ways that a mere decade ago would have sounded like pure science fiction. From his unique vantage as a trained physician, researcher, and medical futurist, Dr. Bertalan Mesko examines these developments and the many more down the pipeline. His aim is to assess how the hand of technology can continue to provide the dose of humanity that is crucial to effective healthcare. The Guide to the Future of Medicine: Technology and the Human Touch is his incisive, illuminating roundup of the technologies and trends that will shape the future of medicine. Patients, medical professionals, and any healthcare stakeholder will find an eye opening, reassuring roadmap to tomorrow’s potential in this accessible and fact-based book. By preparing for the inevitable waves of change, you can make informed decisions about how technology will shape your own well-being.

“As humans, I think we prefer consistently average experiences over inconsistently good ones. Dealing with humans is inconsistently wonderful. Dealing with machines is consistently average. We’ll take consistently average over inconsistently happy any day,” said Dancy. Reaching beyond the novelty of data collection and wearable technology, Dancy described the connection between available information about our lives and the influence this data can have on our health and happiness.

Chris Dancy - "The most connected human on Earth."

Chris Dancy has been engaging information systems for over 25 years, wearing as many hats as there are heads in the IT industry. He currently is employed as Chief Digital Officer and Senior Vice President at Healthways, Inc.

As a Data Exhaust Cartographer, Chris utilizes 300-700 sensors, devices, applications, and services to track, analyze, and optimize as many areas of his existence as he can think of. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.

Chris's name and avatar are synonymous with the future of work, edutainment, technically-enabled external evolution, and his quantified life (existence). He travels extensively and speaks on these topics and more, and has been featured in Fox News, NPR, BBC, TechCrunch, Businessweek, Wired, Bloomberg TV, and The Guardian as the “Most connected human on Earth.”
