From activity trackers to Google Glass, wearables are all the rage. But who should get access to the data? Unfortunately, just because you wear a device doesn't mean that you get access to your data. As a data scientist, I've been wearing 10+ activity trackers for the past 8 months. What have I learned? I've learned that I can't get my time-resolved data from these devices. Why not? Issues of privacy, lack of standards, and unclear business models for personal data collection and sharing make this difficult. Given this, where we're headed is not toward an Internet of Things, but toward many siloed Internets of Things. This panel will discuss barriers and enablers to creating an open data ecosystem that lays the foundation for one integrated network of connected devices.
