Internet of Things technologies – fitness wristbands and smart watches – are moving health from the hospital to the home. But if your watch, thermostat and games console could manage your well-being, how would you feel about being constantly monitored? Engineer Ian Craddock and social scientist Madeleine Murtagh delve into the technology and the ethics, and ask if this is a future of health we can live with. This event will be chaired by technology and business writer, Martyn Perks.
