Technological innovation has helped us become more calm, soothe our physical pain and augment our bodies in ways we may never have dreamed of. Advances in hardware and software have allowed us to conquer our monkey-minds, know ourselves better and treat illness like never before. On the other hand, some innovations in technology are increasingly asking for more of our time and attention, creating an epidemic of addiction, neuroticism and an “attention economy”. The apps and devices we use - even those that claim to make us better - might be making us unhappier, unhealthier and unable to focus. Will technology shape our health in a positive or negative way? Should we switch on or switch off technology to make ourselves healthier and happier? Mind Body Code is Code Like a Girl’s November event for 2017. We’re bringing together expert technologists from the health, wellness, body and mindfulness sectors to showcase their success stories and explore the impact that technology can have on our bodies and minds, now and in the future. This event will showcase three speakers in both Sydney & Melbourne who’ve made an impact using tech in this space. You’ll hear each expert tell their story and address how technology might change our physical and mental health - and what the future looks like around technology-assisted wellness, HealthTech and related innovations.
