Can your health be programmed like an app?

When

Tuesday 9 April from 8pm to 9pm

This event is now sold out.

Find out how emerging technologies are evolving to meet our biggest health needs.

Apps, trackers and other personal gadgets have produced an unprecedented abundance of health data. And yet, our collective wellbeing is at a low. If we think of the body as our most intricate Application Programming Interface, how can we 'program' it for better health?

Three-time startup founder, Pete Field, asks if tech-driven personalised healthcare can solve some of our intractable health challenges and help us get the sleep we need to live our best lives.

Pete unravels how health data is being transformed into precise activations, programming our way to better health and longevity.

Bio

Pete Field is the co-founder and CEO of Affectable Labs, a company that develops technologies that alter our neurophysiology for improved health. Pete’s lifelong struggle with insomnia and background as a software engineer at data61/CSIRO, have equipped him with a unique perspective and the passion to tackle complex health challenges.

Also at the Abercrombie at 6pm: Changing reality with stories.

About the venue - The Abercrombie

The Abercrombie has undergone an incredible transformation with three venues now under the one roof.

On ground floor is the Abercrombie’s incredible club space with a state of the art sound system, public bar, and beer garden with a full pub menu and pizza by the slice.

For a more relaxed atmosphere, venture upstairs to Casa Rosa, a playful, late-night Italo-disco cocktail lounge and rooftop terrace with an eclectic mix of DJs on high rotation throughout the week.

Head into the adjoining terraces, for Chippendale's (very) late-night wine bar and shop, Lil Sis. Inspired by the charming ‘cave à vins’ found in the neighbourhoods of Paris.
