Takashi Kido, Keiki Takadama, Program Cochairs
One of the most significant shifts in our contemporary world is the trend toward obtaining and analyzing big data in nearly every venue of life. For better health, wellness, and well-being, it is very significant to acquire personal meaningful information from big data. However, the following outstanding challenges should be tackled to make big data become personal: (1) how to quantify our health, wellness, and well-being for generating useful big data that will become meaningful knowledge; (2) how to turn the large volumes of impersonal quantitative data into qualitative information that can impact the quality of life of the individual; and (3) how the quantitative data and qualitative information contribute to improving our health, wellness, and well-being. This symposium seeks to explore the methods and/or methodologies for the above three questions.
