Modern Wellbeing and The Ironies of Turning to Tech to Become More Human
-- How Tech Changes Our Minds, Bodies, Communities, and Spaces --
Presented by Jeremiah Owyang

Thursday, August 29, 2019
DocuSign Executive Briefing Center
221 Main St., San Francisco, CA
5:30 - 8:00 pm

Modern Wellbeing is trending on Main Street -- and it's big business with serious ramifications.

Jeremiah Owyang, Founder of Kaleido Insights, has identified another powerful technology trend where consumer-grade technologies, powered by tech giants, are enabling humans to augment their thoughts, emotions, bodies, and relationships with others.

In this dynamic presentation, he’ll define “modern wellbeing” by illustrating the four areas being augmented by technology, sharing key case studies, and showcasing some of the leading technology providers.

The modern wellbeing trend isn’t just a rose-colored road; there are serious concerns around privacy, power shifting to Silicon Valley, and the core purpose of the human condition.

Jeremiah will explore these challenges, as well as provide additional trend data, funding information, and forecast future implications.

* Learn about research-based insights on the “well-tech” space

* Find out why Calm is now valued at a billion dollars, with its customers being large enterprise organizations

* Find out how Apple now has more information about our well being than our primary care doctors, and how consumers and citizens are turning to Silicon Valley for their wellbeing -- rather than traditional health institutions

* And much more.
